1308.1007 (Gerard 't Hooft)

The Fate of the Quantum    [PDF]

Gerard 't Hooft
Although the suspicion that quantum mechanics is emergent has been lingering for a long time, only now we begin to understand how a bridge between classical and quantum mechanics might be squared with Bell's inequalities and other conceptual obstacles. Here, it is shown how mappings can be formulated that relate quantum systems to classical systems. By generalizing these ideas, one gets quite general models in which quantum mechanics and classical mechanics can merge. It is helpful to have some good model examples such as string theory. It is suggested that notions such as 'super determinism' and 'conspiracy' should be looked at much more carefully than in the, by now, standard arguments.
