M athematical models for deducing cause-effect relationships from statistical data have been successful in diverse areas of science (see Ref. [1] and references therein). Such models can be applied, for instance, to establish causal relationships between smoking and cancer or to analyze risks in construction projects. Can similar models be extended to the microscopic world governed by the laws of quantum mechanics? Answering this question could lead to advances in quantum information and to a… CONTINUE READING
