Answers to five questions concerning issues in the philosophy of quantum mechanics from a course I took with Wayne Myrvold in 2004. The questions concern constraints on hidden variable theories, the Bell-Kochen-Specker theorem, the measurement problem and some proposed solutions, the EPR argument and entanglement.

Fibre Bundles in Gauge Theory and Philosophy

An expository paper on the fibre bundle formalism in coordinate-free differential geometry (based on Gauge Fields, Knots and Gravity  by John Baez and Javier Munian) as it is applied to gauge field theory in physics together with an examination of the role that the fibre bundle formalism plays in addressing philosophical, particularly ontological, issues that are raised by the standard model and general relativity and in the interplay between physics and mathematics.
