Professor Aharonov’s research interests are nonlocal and topological effects in quantum mechanics, relativistic quantum field theories, and interpretations of quantum mechanics.

Concepts and Paradoxes in a Quantum Universe

Recently, a new counter-intuitive phenomenon, called quantum Cheshire-cat, is observed in a neutron interferometer experiment. Together with Daniel Rohrlich, Israel, he has written a pioneering work on the remaining mysteries of quantum mechanics.

Would you like to change to the site? We conclude then with the following mantra: However, our understanding of quantum tunneling dynamics is far from complete, and there are still a number of theoretical and experimental challenges. Finally making sense of Quantum Mechanics, part 5.

Trivia About Quantum Paradoxes Pusey showed that, under certain conditions, exhibiting an anomalous weak value implies contextuality. Andrew Meintzer marked it as to-read Aug 01, Since the same action also appears aharono classical descriptions of the dynamics it is possible to derive quantum states and their time evolution directly from the classical equations of motion, without the abstractions of operator algebra.

How specific counterfactual paradoxes in pre- and post-selected Kochen-Specker sets give rise to experimentally observable consequences.

Measurements performed at variable strengths show that non-commuting physical properties are related by complex-valued paradooxes, where the complex phase expresses the action of transformations along orbits represented by the eigenstates. Ming marked it as to-read Jan 16, Juan Mauricio TorresDarmstadt University of Technology Atomic two-qubit quantum operations with ancillary multiphoton states.


In classical mechanics, an action is defined only modulo additive terms which do not modify the equations of motion; in certain cases, these terms are topological quantities. This example shows how the non-classical features of quantum statistics emerge from the effects quanrum enclosed actions on the causality relations between the initial orbit prepared by ergodic randomization and the final orbit along which the system was sampled during the measurement.

The author has contributed monumental concepts to theoretical physics, especially the Aharonov-Bohm effect and the Aharonov-Casher effect.

Quantum Paradoxes: Quantum Theory for the Perplexed by Yakir Aharonov

Adding gates, such measurements may then implement ancilla-based measurements of controllable strength. In strong measurements, the dynamics along the orbits is completely randomized, which means that the pure states prepared by such a measurement actually represent ergodic statistics where the coherence between components originates from quantum dynamics.

National Academy of Sciences. From the perspective of a preeminent researcher in the fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics, the text combines mathematical rigor with penetrating and concise language.

We look at the weak measurement through two distinct geometric frames: Lee Smolin, Perimeter Institute Quantum mechanics and the principle of maximal variety. We propose and theoretically investigate the implementation of entangling operations on two two-level atoms using cavity-QED scenarios.

Paperbackpages. The weak value, as an expectation value, requires an ensemble to be found. With students as well as researchers in mind, the authors give an insight into that part of the field, which led Feynman to declare that “nobody understands quantum mechanics.

How to count one photon and get a n average result of One may imagine three approximate solutions to the exact dynamics, where two of the three entities do not interact at all, and the third, quantized, entity interacts with a classical approximation.


A Guide through the Mysteries of Quantum Physics! According to the many worlds interpretation MWIquantum mechanics in its simplest form no collapse or hidden variables is complete. Maxim marked it as to-read Mar 11, We show that the resulting quantum operation can be exploited to implement an entanglement purification protocol, where a fidelity larger than one half with respect to any Bell state is not a necessary condition.

Also, this result shows that the spatially separated phonon can be interfered. Theoretical analysis quqntum experimental results performed in the MPQ laboratory of Harald Weinfurter are presented.
