A Royal Road to Quantum Theory (or Thereabouts), Extended Abstract

Abstract

A representation of finite-dimensional probabilistic models in terms of formally real Jordan algebras is obtained, in a strikingly easy way, from simple assumptions. This provides a framework in which real, complex and quaternionic quantum mechanics can be treated on an equal footing, and allows some (but not too much) room for other alternatives. This is… (More)
