Cat Paradox for C*-Dynamical Systems : Invited Papers
In the algebraic approach to the quantum physics, the notion of a macroscopic observable has been well established. This paper examines a program for the unification of classical mechanics and quantum mechanics based on the macroscopic observable and the algebraic description of a dynamical system such as a C*-dynamical system. It is proved quite generally that in this approach we cannot describe the measuring interaction between a microscopic system and a macroscopic apparatus by a C*-dynamical system, or any similar frameworks, as long as the time reversibility of the dynamics of isolated systems is assumed.
