# Quantum to Classical Transition per the Relational Blockworld

@article{Stuckey2006QuantumTC, title={Quantum to Classical Transition per the Relational Blockworld}, author={William Stuckey and Michael Silberstein and Michael Christian Cifone}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2006} }

The transition from the quantum realm to the classical realm is described in the context of the Relational Blockworld (RBW) interpretation of non-relativistic quantum mechanics. We first introduce RBW, discuss its philosophical implications and provide an example of its explanatory methodology via the so-called "quantum liar experiment." We then provide a simple example of a quantum to classical transition in this context using a gedanken twin-slit experiment. We conclude by speculating on the… Expand
