Quantum Games of Opinion Formation Based on the Marinatto-Weber Quantum Game Scheme

Authors: Xinyang Deng, Yong Deng, Zhen Wang, Qi Liu
Comments: 19 pages.

Quantization becomes a new way to study classical game theory since quantum strategies and quantum games have been proposed. In previous studies, many typical game models, such as prisoner's dilemma, battle of the sexes, Hawk-Dove game, have been investigated by using quantization approaches. In this paper, several game models of opinion formations have been quantized based on the Marinatto-Weber quantum game scheme, a frequently used scheme to convert classical games to quantum versions. Our results show that the quantization can change fascinatingly the properties of some classical opinion formation game models so as to generate win-win outcomes.

An Quantum Extension to Inspection Game

Authors: Xinyang Deng, Yong Deng, Zhen Wang, Qi Liu
Comments: 22 pages.

Quantum game theory is a new interdisciplinary field between game theory and physical research. In this paper, we extend the classical inspection game into a quantum game version by quantizing the strategy space and importing entanglement between players. The quantum inspection has various Nash equilibrium depending on the initial quantum state of the game. Our results also show that quantization can respectively help each player to increase his own payoff, but can not simultaneously improve the collective payoff in the quantum inspection game.

A Reply In Vixra Forums That Became Too Long, And Turned Into A Hypothesis Of Physics And Astronomy In The Far Future

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 6 Pages.

This started out as my latest reply to HarryT in the forum on called “Quantum gravitational lensing in proton-proton reaction?” ( But I found it necessary to try and answer every detail as best I could. Maybe it wasn’t really necessary – but when you’re a bit of a perfectionist, you end up writing too much. The reply seems too long now to post in the forum, so I’ll submit it as a short article and put a link to it in the forum. Wow, I’m exhausted. Writing all those ideas was a real brain-strain. But I think it finally put together many of the ideas I’ve been slowly developing at for over 3 years. HarryT’s 4 comments are underlined, and my replies follow.

On the Nature of Time and Simultaneity

Authors: Benjamin Palan
Comments: 8 Pages.

What is time ? Which properties are emergent and which are intrinsic ? Time is discussed, with special emphasis on properly discriminating the hypothetical outside perspective from the time of a world itself. This leads to a single, relatively simple model of time which is thought to encompass all others. Applying it to simultaneity, a conjecture is made which could turn out to be of great importance to proper definition and discrimination of relativity of simultaneity and of absolute simultaneity. The author was unable to disprove the conjecture, but found strong indications pointing to it's truth.
