We analyze different aspects of our quantum modeling approach and, more specifically, focus on the quantum effects of contextuality, interference, entanglement, and emergence, illustrating how each of them makes its appearance in specific situations of the dynamics of human concepts and their combinations.Expand

A theory for modelling concepts that uses the state context property (SCoP) formalism, which provides a solution of the Pet-Fish problem and other difficulties occurring in concept theory.Expand

Empirical evidence has confirmed that quantum effects occur frequently also outside the microscopic domain, while quantum structures satisfactorily model various situations in several areas of… Expand

We present a new refined entanglement scheme to model these data within standard quantum theory rules, where “entangled measurements and entangled evolutions” occur, in addition to the expected ‘entangled states’.Expand

The construction of a consistent theory for structuring and representing how concepts combine and interact is one of the main challenges for the scholars involved in cognitive studies.Expand

We elaborate a quantum model in Hilbert space describing the Ellsberg and Machina paradoxes, and show that we can model the specific aspect of the Machina situation that is unable to be modeled within the existing generalizations of expected utility.Expand

We support the authors' claims, except that we point out that also quantum structure different from quantum probability abundantly plays a role in human cognition. We put forward several elements to… Expand

The Machina thought experiments pose to major non-expected utility models challenges that are similar to those posed by the Ellsberg thought experiments to subjective expected utility theory (SEUT).Expand

Inspired by a mathematical formalism that generalizes quantum mechanics the authors have constructed a contextual framework for both concept representation and decision making, together with quantum models in strong alignment with experimental data.Expand
