Description

Causality is a crucial concept for our understanding of nature. In relativity, the objective properties of a system are dictated by the causal relations between events in spacetime. While quantum mechanical predictions comply with relativity, objective properties do not satisfy the same causal relations — the phenomenon known as non-locality.

Quantum mechanics is consistent with special relativity at an operational level but appears to violate it at an ontological level. This reveals a deep subtlety in the way that quantum theory and relativity co-exist. Understanding this subtlety will be crucial to understanding how physical theories lead to a notion of things happening through the language of causality.

The aim of the workshop is to explore all these different concepts, bringing together researchers interested in causality within quantum physics.
