Classical indeterminism near closed time-like curves

General relativity predicts the possibility of space-time geometries that contain closed time-like curves (CTCs), along which a particle could travel back in time and interact with its past self. Studies of simple bouncing billiard balls along CTCs have revealed a surprising feature: Given the...

Locality from dynamics

All fundamental interactions known in nature are local: only close-by systems can interact. But where does the very notion of closeness come from? Ultimately, we only learn about spatial relations through physical systems, it should thus be possible to understand the locality...

Quantum Information on indefinite causal structure

Quantum information has developed in the last decades into a broad field, offering several promising applications for future technology and deep insights into the foundations of physics. Very recently, first steps have been made in the direction of theoretically characterising and experimentally...
