non- +‎ separable


  • The particles 'intrinsic charge, mass and spin may then arise as nonseparable features of the world at the deepest level.

    Holism and Nonseparability in Physics

  • An interpretation of quantum mechanics that ascribes a nonlocalized position to a charged particle on its way through the apparatus is committed to a violation of spatiotemporal separability in the Aharonov-Bohm effect, since the particle's passage constitutes a nonseparable process.

    Holism and Nonseparability in Physics

  • On the other hand, lattice QFT cannot approximate the C*-algebras in the operator norm because the lattice algebras are separable whilst the CCR-algebra is nonseparable.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • Finally, as it was clear while working on our 1982 paper that greater intertemporal substitution of labor was a way to produce more labor-input volatility in the model, as an alternative to our standard utility function we had also introduced one that was nonseparable over time in leisure.

    Action at a Distance in Quantum Mechanics

  • (and other gauge theories) is increasingly common in physics, to treat the motion of the charged particles as a nonseparable process is to endorse a particular position on how quantum mechanics is to be interpreted.

    Holism and Nonseparability in Physics

  • a process may be nonseparable even though it involves objects without proper parts.

    Holism and Nonseparability in Physics

  • As Toraldo di Francia aptly summarizes: “Since any particle has certainly interacted with other particles in the past, the world turns out to be nonseparable into individual and independent objects.
