Quantum statistics originate from the physics of state preparation. It is therefore wrong to think of quantum states as fundamental. In fact, quantum states are merely summaries of dynamical processes that randomize the properties of the system by drawing on the inexhaustible reservoir of quantum fluctuations provided by the physical tools used to control the quantum system. The mathematical form of the "state vector" is actually an expression of the laws of causality which describe the… 
Games of entangled agents
Abstract The paper extends the mathematical formalism of quantum physics to include games of intelligent agents that communicate due to entanglement. The novelty of the approach is based upon a human
Quantum-Inspired Approach to Computational Economics
The approach is based upon a human-factor-based behavioral model of an intelligent agent represented by a modified Madelung equation in which the gradient of quantum potential is replaced by a specially chosen information force.
Towards a mathematical Theory of the Madelung Equations
Even though the Madelung equations are central to many ‘classical’ approaches to the foundations of quantum mechanics such as Bohmian and stochastic mechanics, no coherent mathematical theory has
