Quantum Physics from A to Z

Quantum Physics from A to Z in the Physics archive.

"This is a collection of statements gathered on the occasion of the Quantum Physics of Nature meeting in Vienna."

Since philosophers are beginning to discuss the “Zeilinger principle” of quantum physics [1, 2, 3] it appears timely to get a community view on what that might be. The interpretation in question seems to have been developed over a period totalling 60 years to the day and does not only concern quantum mechanics but physics as a whole.

One of the statements attributed to Zeilinger is "Good papers have to be sexy." This is apparently what passes for sexy in the world of quantum information theory.
