    I presume these folks at SQuInT are interested in how “decoherence” affects quantum systems and what that really is. I am one of those who endlessly argue about “the collapse of the wave function” but I add that it is not resolved by decoherence concepts. One of the targets of my nuisancing is long-suffering Chad Orzel at Uncertain Principles. Today he “honored” (;-) me by setting up a thread in my name: “Official Neil B Quantum Measurement Thread” at I made my first comment wearing pajamas in my mother’s house, for real. Check it out! It’s not all just “philosophy,” I included an experiment with changing polarization at one of two slits that seems to have real implications.
