The school aims at introducing PhD students to the still outstanding problems in our understanding of the foundations of quantum mechanics. Afternoons will be dedicated to tutorials where more applied aspects of each theory will be presented and discussed. Wednesday 19 June: Collapse Models (A. Bassi) - Measurement Problem - Non-linear modifications of the Schrödinger Equation - The Ghirardi-Rimini-Weber Model - Amplification Mechanism - Density Matrix - Application of collapse models to optomechanics experiments Thursday 20 June: Bohmian Mechanics (D. Dürr) - Typicality - Coarse Graining and Typicality Measure - Typicality in the Continuum - Bohmian Mechanics - Typicality Analysis and Born’s statistical interpretation - Heisenberg’suncertainty Friday 21 June: Shape Dynamics (N. Zanghì). - Shape Space - Metrics on Shape Space and best Matching - Classical Motion on Shape Space - Quantum Motion on Shape Space - Emergence of Absolute Space and Time
