Does boundary quantum mechanics imply quantum mechanics in the bulk?

. To conclude, in the language of quantum error correction we are asserting that (0) is a logical but non-associative operator. This means it cannot be interpreted in standard quantum mechanics. The bulk ... Hilbert space. It appears that bulk quantum mechanics only arises in perturbation theory around a semiclassical background. It would be interesting to explore the relevance of this for the rewall paradox

Meeting the Contact-Mechanics Challenge

This paper summarizes the submissions to a recently announced contact-mechanics modeling challenge. The task was to solve a typical, albeit mathematically fully defined problem on the adhesion ... area is hard to define rigorously outside of continuum mechanics, so that reporting it is a purely academic exercise. In continuum mechanics, true contact can correspond to either zones of compressive
