In the quantum-Bayesian approach to quantum foundations, a quantum state is viewed as an expression of an agent’s personalist Bayesian degrees of belief, or probabilities, concerning the results of measurements. These probabilities obey the usual probability rules as required by Dutch-book coherence, but quantum mechanics imposes additional constraints upon them. In this paper, we explore the question of deriving the structure of quantum-state space from a set of assumptions in the spirit of… 
Quantum-Bayesian Coherence
TLDR
It is argued that the Born Rule should be seen as an empirical addition to Bayesian reasoning itself, and how to view it as a normative rule in addition to usual Dutch-book coherence is shown.
Bayes + Hilbert = Quantum Mechanics
We consider the problem of gambling on a quantum experiment and enforce rational behaviour by a few rules. These rules yield, in the classical case, the Bayesian theory of probability via duality
Quantum mechanics: The Bayesian theory generalized to the space of Hermitian matrices

QBism, the Perimeter of Quantum Bayesianism
This article summarizes the Quantum Bayesian point of view of quantum mechanics, with special emphasis on the view's outer edges---dubbed QBism. QBism has its roots in personalist Bayesian
How Bayesian Probability Might Help Provide a Realist Interpretation of the Quantum Formalism
We offer a realist interpretation of non-relativistic quantum mechanics in which dynamical properties are properly possessed by the system in question, and are supposed to have definite values at any
Geometry of Quantum States from Symmetric Informationally Complete Probabilities
It is usually taken for granted that the natural mathematical framework for quantum mechanics is the theory of Hilbert spaces, where pure states of a quantum system correspond to complex vectors of

TLDR
The aim is to adopt the subjective probability interpretation of quantum mechanics, quantum Bayesianism (QBism), to serve quantum-like modelling and applications of quantum probability outside of physics.
Properties of QBist State Spaces
Every quantum state can be represented as a probability distribution over the outcomes of an informationally complete measurement. But not all probability distributions correspond to quantum states.

Unknown Quantum States and Operations, a Bayesian View
TLDR
Two results are motivate and review two results that generalize de Finetti's theorem to the quantum mechanical setting: a definetti theorem for quantum states and a de Fintti theorem forquantum operations.

Unknown Quantum States: The Quantum de Finetti Representation
We present an elementary proof of the quantum de Finetti representation theorem, a quantum analog of de Finetti’s classical theorem on exchangeable probability assignments. This contrasts with the

Quantum Bayes rule
We state a quantum version of Bayes’s rule for statistical inference and give a simple general derivation within the framework of generalized measurements. The rule can be applied to measurements on

In this paper, I try once again to cause some good-natured trouble. The issue remains, when will we ever stop burdening the taxpayer with conferences devoted to the quantum foundations? The suspicion
Quantum mechanics without probability amplitudes
First steps are taken toward a formulation of quantum mechanics which avoids the use of probability amplitudes and is expressed entirely in terms of observable probabilities. Quantum states are
Framed Hilbert space: hanging the quasi-probability pictures of quantum theory
Building on earlier work, we further develop a formalism based on the mathematical theory of frames that defines a set of possible phase-space or quasi-probability representations of
