Orthologic and quantum logic: models and computational elements

  title={Orthologic and quantum logic: models and computational elements},
  author={J. P. Rawling and S. A. Selesnick},

Motivated by a growing need to understand the computational potential of quantum devices we suggest an approach to the relevant issues via quantum logic and its model theory. By isolating such notions as quantum parallelism and interference within a model-theoretic setting, quite divorced from their customary physical trappings, we seek to lay bare their logical underpinnings and possible computational ramifications. In the first part of the paper, a brief account of the relevant model theory… CONTINUE READING
