    A Whiteheadian Approach to Bell's Correlations.Shimon Malin - 1988 - Foundations of Physics 18 (10):1035-1044.
    Certain properties of the Bell-type correlations and, in particular, the impossibility of using them to transmit signals faster than light, are investigated from the point of view of the conceptual structure of quantum mechanics and of Whitehead's process philosophy. The collapses of quantum states are shown to correspond to perspectives of different frames of reference on a Whiteheadian process of self-creation of actual entities. The analysis suggests a fundamental limitation on the capacity to describe the propagation of influences among the (...)

    Quantum States and Potentialities of Quantum Systems.Shimon Malin - 1986 - Foundations of Physics 16 (12):1297-1305.
    In a previous article it was shown that in general quantum states represent perspectives on the potentialities of quantum systems, rather than the potentialities themselves. In the present paper the following questions are investigated in the context of this result: (1) How do quantum states which undergo collapse transform under pure translations? (2) Under what conditions do quantum states represent the potentialities themselves? Two alternatives are presented in response to the first question: (1) Quantum states are scalars under translations. (2) (...)

    The Collapse of Quantum States: A New Interpretation. [REVIEW]Shimon Malin - 1993 - Foundations of Physics 23 (6):881-893.
    The collapse of quantum states is analyzed in terms of a breakdown into two generic phases: Phase I, in which the field of potentialities that the quantum state represents undergoes a discontinuous and unpredictable change into one of the base states which corresponds to the measurement performed, and phase II, in which a transition from the level of potentialities to the level of actualities takes place. Phase I is discussed in relation to a comment about collapse, made by Dirac in (...)

    The Meaning and Significance of Quantum States.S. Malin - 1984 - Foundations of Physics 14 (11):1083-1094.
    Recent investigations have conclusively proved that, because of their collapse, quantum states transform noncovariantly under Lorentz transformations. This result is shown to imply that quantum states do not represent probability distributions for the results of measurements. They represent, rather, perspectives of such probability distributions from the point of view of the frame of reference in which they are given. The ontological status of these “perspectives of potentialities” is discussed. It is conjectured that they propagate from the location of a measurement (...)

    Field Theory onR× S 3 Topology. III: The Dirac Equation. [REVIEW]M. Carmeli & S. Malin - 1985 - Foundations of Physics 15 (10):1019-1029.
    A Dirac-type equation on R×S 3 topology is derived. It is a generalization of the previously obtained Klein-Gordon-type, Schrödinger-type, and Weyl-type equations, and reduces to the latter in the appropriate limit. The (discrete) energy spectrum is found and the corresponding complete set of solutions is given as expansions in terms of the matrix elements of the irreducible representations of the group SU 2 . Finally, the properties of the solutions are discussed.

    Nature Loves to Hide: Quantum Physics and Reality, a Western Perspective.Shimon Malin - 2001 - Oxford University Press.
    The strangeness of modern physics has sparked several popular books--such as The Tao of Physics--that explore its affinity with Eastern mysticism. But the founders of quantum mechanics were educated in the classical traditions of Western civilization and Western philosophy. In Nature Loves to Hide, physicist Shimon Malin takes readers on a fascinating tour of quantum theory--one that turns to Western philosophical thought to clarify this strange yet inescapable explanation of reality. Malin translates quantum mechanics into plain English, explaining its origins (...)

    Field Theory onR× S 3 Topology. II: The Weyl Equation. [REVIEW]M. Carmeli & S. Malin - 1985 - Foundations of Physics 15 (2):185-191.
    A Weyl-type equation onR×S 3 topology is derived, as a generalization to previously obtained Klein-Gordon- and Schrödinger-type equations for the same topology. The general solution of the new equation is given as an expansion in the matrix elements of the irreducible representations of the groupSU 2. The properties of the solutions are discussed.

    Electrodynamics in Terms of Functions Over the groupSU(2). I. The Equation of the Vector Potential.A. O. Barut & S. Malin - 1975 - Foundations of Physics 5 (3):375-386.
    This is the first in a series of papers in which a method of harmonic analysis in terms of functions over the groupSU(2) is applied to the description of interaction between matter and the electromagnetic field. Carmeli'sSU(2) formulation of Maxwell's equations is extended to anSU(2) formulation of the equations for the electromagnetic vector potential. The four functions which describe the vector potential are expanded in a generalized Fourier series [SU(2) harmonic analysis] and the equations for the coefficients are derived. These (...)

    Field Theory onR×S 3 Topology. VI: Gravitation. [REVIEW]M. Carmeli & S. Malin - 1987 - Foundations of Physics 17 (4):407-417.
    We extend to curved space-time the field theory on R×S3 topology in which field equations were obtained for scalar particles, spin one-half particles, the electromagnetic field of magnetic moments, an SU2 gauge theory, and a Schrödinger-type equation, as compared to ordinary field equations that are formulated on a Minkowskian metric. The theory obtained is an angular-momentum representation of gravitation. Gravitational field equations are presented and compared to the Einstein field equations, and the mathematical and physical similarity and differences between them (...)

    The Mass Operator in Riemannian Spacetimes.Kh Huleihil & S. Malin - 1980 - Foundations of Physics 10 (5-6):459-467.
    There is no unique way to generalize the mass operator 0 2 −p · p to curved spacetimes. The possible generalizations using either an analytic or an algebraic (group-theoretic) approach are discussed. We investigate in detail three possibilities: (i) the generalized D'Alembertian $$- \tilde \square = - (1/\sqrt { - g} )(\partial /\partial x^v )(\sqrt { - g} g^{\mu v} {\text{ }}\partial /\partial x^\mu$$ (ii) the operator ( $- (\tilde \square + \tfrac{1}{6}{\text{R)}}$ , which is conformally invariant in the massless (...)

    Field Theory onR×S 3 Topology. IV: Electrodynamics of Magnetic Moments. [REVIEW]M. Carmeli & S. Malin - 1986 - Foundations of Physics 16 (8):791-806.
    The equations of electrodynamics for the interactions between magnetic moments are written on R×S3 topology rather than on Minkowskian space-time manifold of ordinary Maxwell's equations. The new field equations are an extension of the previously obtained Klein-Gordon-type, Schrödinger-type, Weyl-type, and Dirac-type equations. The concept of the magnetic moment in our case takes over that of the charge in ordinary electrodynamics as the fundamental entity. The new equations have R×S3 invariance as compared to the Lorentz invariance of Maxwell's equations. The solutions (...)

    Field Theory onR×S 3 Topology. V:SU 2 Gauge Theory. [REVIEW]M. Carmeli & S. Malin - 1987 - Foundations of Physics 17 (2):193-200.
    A gauge theory on R×S 3 topology is developed. It is a generalization to the previously obtained field theory on R×S 3 topology and in which equations of motion were obtained for a scalar particle, a spin one-half particle, the electromagnetic field of magnetic moments, and a Shrödinger-type equation, as compared to ordinary field equations defined on a Minkowskian manifold. The new gauge field equations are presented and compared to the ordinary Yang-Mills field equations, and the mathematical and physical differences (...)

    In a previous article by two of the present authors Carmeli's group-theoretic method for the formulation of wave equations was applied to the case of the electromagnetic field, and the equations for the vector potential were derived. In the present paper a quantization procedure for these equations is carried out in the Lorentz gauge. It involves two independent variables, corresponding to the number of degrees of freedom of the electromagnetic field in a Hilbert space with a positive-definite metric. Conserved quantities (...)
