If I thought I had a 2% chance of genuinely
comprehending any meaningful aspect of this intriguing sounding 'talk' [C1.00002] in the vicinity of Sand Hill Road in a manner above and beyond the aforementioned Chimp attempting to make heads or tails of a Gilbert & Sullivan
riff on a Tennyson poem, then I would by all means make the brief journey across the pond!

American Physical Society California-Nevada Section
2011 Annual Meeting
November 11-12, 2011
SLAC, Menlo Park, CA
The 2011 Annual Meeting of the APS California-Nevada Section will take place at SLAC National Accelerator
Laboratory on Friday and Saturday, November 11th and 12th 2011.
SLAC is the home of the world's first hard X-ray free electron laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) as well as the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL).  One of the plenary talks presented by Joachim Stohr (SLAC) will describe the fascinating scientific opportunities with LCLS.  The other plenary talks will describe state of the art projects, where scientists from the section play an integral part.  Steve Ritz (UCSC) will give recent results from the Fermi Space Telescope whose main instrument was built at SLAC.  Natalie Batalha (SJSU) will describe the Kepler mission to search for planets outside
the solar system, which is hosted at NASA-Ames.  Alessandra Lanzara (UCB) will speak on recent
developments in the area of superconductors.  In addition, Nobel Laureate Burton Richter (SLAC) will speak on "Energy Policy Today" after the conference dinner.
Several items on the program agenda are of particular interest to young scientists. Given SLAC's location in the heart of Silicon Valley, the career panel will discuss "How to Start Working for a Startup
Company".  There will also be a student lunch with experts on Friday and tours of the SLAC facilities will be offered on Saturday afternoon.  We welcome you to a productive and exciting meeting.

The American Physical Society

Is entanglement signaling really impossible? JACK SARFATTI, ISEP  --  Quantum information theory is based on the premise that entanglement cannot be used as a stand-alone communication channel without a classical signal key decoder. The proof depends on linearity of observables, orthogonal base states, and unitary time evolution between measurements of the Schrodinger equation in configuration space. Spontaneous symmetry breakdown giving a Higgs-Goldstone condensate macro-quantum coherent Glauber ground state has a nonlinear non-unitary Landau-Ginzburg equation in ordinary physical space.  The Glauber coherent states are non-orthogonal. The conditions for no-entanglement signaling are not satisfied in this case and it may mean the need for a generalized quantum theory that is to orthodox quantum theory as general relativity is to special relativity.

Can someone tell me what this paper is about and if it's important?

(a) read the abstract, Jack, if you can tear yourself away from Gilbert and Sullivan Studies for a moment!
(b) AK seems to be making very unphysical assumptions about localisability so I have doubts.  Typical for someone who thinks telepathy doesn't exist.


PS to entice you to read all of the paper, there's some Shakespeare in it!

My impressions exactly. Much Ado about nothing very important.
I did scan it quickly to the end and did notice the Shakespeare quote - the best part of the paper.
You can summon, but will they come? etc.
What's all this B$ about not being able to distinguish non-orthogonal states?
Don't these people know about Glauber coherent states?
Do they say we can't distinguish them?
What's wrong with this picture?
What am I missing here, if anything?
