  1. Arthur Jabs, A Conjecture Concerning Determinism and Phases in Quantum Mechanics. arXiv.
    It is shown that it is possible to introduce determinism into quantum mechanics by tracing the probabilities in the Born rules back to pseudorandomness in the absolute phase constants of the wave functions. Each wave function is conceived to contain an individual phase factor exp(i alpha). In an ensemble of systems the phase constants alpha are taken to be pseudorandom numbers. A reduction process (collapse) of the wave function, independent of any measurement, is conceived to be a spatial contraction, and (...)

  2. Arthur Jabs, Quantum Mechanics in Terms of Realism.
    In contrast to the Copenhagen interpretation of the formalism of quantum mechanics the proposed interpretation is formulated in the language of epistemological realism.

  3. Arthur Jabs, Connecting Spin and Statistics in Quantum Mechanics. Foundations of Physics.
    The spin-statistics connection is derived in a simple manner under the postulates that the original and the exchange wave functions are simply added, and that the azimuthal phase angle, which defines the orientation of the spin part of each single-particle spin-component eigenfunction in the plane normal to the spin-quantization axis, is exchanged along with the other parameters. The spin factor (−1)2s belongs to the exchange wave function when this function is constructed so as to get the spinor ambiguity under control. (...)

  4. Arthur Jabs (1992). An Interpretation of the Formalism of Quantum Mechanics in Terms of Epistemological Realism. British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 43 (3):405-421.
    We present an alternative to the Copenhagen interpretation of the formalism of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. The basic difference is that the new interpretation is formulated in the language of epistemological realism. It involves a change in some basic physical concepts. Elementary particles are considered as extended objects and nonlocal effects are included. The role of the new concepts in the problems of measurement and of the Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen correlations is described. Experiments to distinguish the proposed interpretation from the Copenhagen one are (...)
