On the Connection Between Quantum Probability and Geometry

An interpretation that generalizes the method developed by R. T. Cox to the quantum logical approach to physical theories is proposed and the relevance of developing a geometrical interpretation of quantum mechanics is stressed.

��� 1. The Main Claims This paper has two parts, a historical and a systematic. In the historical part it is argued that the two major axiomatic approaches to relativistic quantum aeld theory, the

The Principle of the Common Cause

The common cause principle says that every correlation is either due to a direct causal effect linking the correlated entities or is brought about by a third factor, a so-called common cause. The

Some Historical and Philosophical Aspects of Quantum Probability Theory and its Interpretation

This paper argues that von Neumann’s work on the theory of ‘rings of operators’ has the same role and significance for quantum probability theory that Kolmogorov and his work represents for classical

Information dynamics and new geometric foundations of quantum theory

We discuss new approach to mathematical foundations of quantum theory, which is completely independent of Hilbert spaces and measure spaces. New kinematics is defined by non-linear geometry of spaces

The General Form of γ-Family of Quantum Relative Entropies

It is conjecture that the proposed family of relative entropies is uniquely characterised by the Markov monotonicity and the Legendre-Fenchel duality.
