A Modification of Quantum Mechanics

11.03.2022 14:15 – 15:15

We present a modification of quantum mechanics in which a
specific class of state-dependent term is added to the Schroedinger
We show that this term produces non-trivial effects which amount
to the wave function talking to itself.
We show that these effects
are nevertheless causal (don't violate relativity) while having profound
experimental consequences.
We also show that this modification has a
embedding in local quantum field theory. While the physical effects are
dramatic, they are also fickle, in that their strength depends on the
cosmological history of the wave function of the universe. We will present
proposals for laboratory (e.g., AMO), astrophysical, and cosmological tests
that could be done to discover such an effect.
