Quantum Mechanics and Global Determinism

Emily Christine Adlam

Abstract


It is proposed that certain features of quantum mechanics may be perspectival effects, which arise because experiments performed on locally accessible variables can only uncover a certain subset of the correlations exhibited by an underlying deterministic theory. This hypothesis is used to derive the no-signaling principle, thus resolving an open question regarding the apparently fine-tuned nature of quantum correlations. Some potential objections to this approach are then discussed and answered.
