(EDIT: Thanks to Nathaniel's comments, I have altered the question to reflect the bits that I am still confused about.) This is a general conceptual question, but for definiteness' sake, imagine a ...
I have to solve this problem. Four bosons moving in 1d harmonic potential(their spin is 0) and interacting through contact interaction defined via delta function. Now, methods that I have to use: a) ...
Can the wave function solution to Schrodinger's Equation be interpreted as an oscillation between all possible measurements (obviously with some type of weighting that would describe the shape of the ...

What exactly is a field theory? How do we classify theories as field theories and non field theories? EDIT: After reading the answers I am under the impression that almost every theory is a ...
What categorical mathematical structure(s) best describe the space of “localized events” in “relational quantum mechanics”?
In a recent (and to me, very enlightening) paper, entitled "Relational EPR", Smerlak and Rovelli present a way of thinking about EPR which relies upon Rovelli's previously published work on relational ...
