A Local Realistic Reconciliation of the EPR Paradox – Some consequences

1. The following is a research lecture given on January 22nd, 2013 at McGill Chemistry: Part 1: Introduction and the Statistical Ensemble Interpretation of quantum mechanics Part 2: The EPR paradox and problems with quantum mechanics Part 3: Measurement and EPR experiments Part 4: Entanglement and Non-locality Part 5: The Two Dimensional spin model Part 6: Corroboration and summary Part 7: Questions 2. Some discussions of the spin model: A Local Realistic Reconciliation of the EPR Paradox CHSH: there lies a vector of length √2  Consistency of Bell’s (CHSH) Inequalities and two dimensional spin The invisible side of quantum spin When quantum mechanics fails in EPR experiments Spin and Quantum Computers Quantum Coherence – now Nature hides stuff from us 3. Further discussion and relationship to Joy Christian’s Clifford Algebra approach: The Bloch Sphere and Spin in Quantum Mechanics Disproof of Bell’s Theorem   The Sub-quantum spin  Two Dimensional spin model: Great simulation of the Stern-Gerlach experiment at http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/stern-gerlach Contrast quantum ensemble (the statistical quantum state) with single particle of...

Complementarity between spin components in quantum mechanics

This example nicely shows several things about quantum mechanics. First quantum mechanics is a statistical theory of measurement. You only get the SG results after many spins have been filtered. Second, Heisenberg’s uncertainty relations tell us that you cannot devise an experiment that will measure both the Z and X polarization simultaneously. You can do it for one, but not the other, and vice versa.

Physical chemistry course outline on intrinsic spin angular momentum.

The lectures will be recorded at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras which is part of the NPTEL program. A major goal of NPTEL is to raise awareness and improve scientific and technological education throughout India by use of multimedia. I will be giving a series of lectures on basic spin theory for chemistry and physics undergraduate students who have a basis in quantum mechanics; know of spin and its importance; and want to go deeper.
