Quantum Theory and Relativity


STARTING from the assumption that the possibilities of defining and measuring high relative impulses are limited in a new way, because of the nature of β-ray forces (with participation of neutrinos) and because of the appearance of explosion showers in the high-energy collisions, an attempt is made to solve the convergence difficulties of quantum theory. The proposed solution is based on a new kind of algebra of quantum states and observables, and on the assumption of the existence of a new kind of indetermination arising from the interaction of high-energy particles with the measuring apparatus.
