Realistic quantum mechanics based on complex probability theory is shown to have a frequency interpretation, to coexist with Bell's theorem, to be linear, to include wavefunctions which are expansions in eigenfunctions of Hermitian operators and to describe both pure and mixed systems. Illustrative examples are given. The quantum version of Bayesian inference is discussed. Postscript version of hep-th/9307019. 
Is Quantum Mechanics an Exotic Probability Theory?
Quantum mechanics is often introduced with a discussion of the two-slit experiment where the observed interference pattern forces us to conclude that the particle goes through both slits at once and
Quantum theory as inductive inference
We present a new approach to the foundations of quantum theory and information theory which is based on the algebraic approach to integration, information geometry, and maximum relative entropy

A realistic interpretation of quantum mechanics. Asymmetric random walks in a discrete spacetime.
1 Abstract In this paper, I propose a realistic interpretation (RI) of quantum mechanics, that is, an interpretation according to which a particle follows a definite path in spacetime. The path is
Are All Probabilities Fundamentally Quantum Mechanical
The subjective and the objective aspects of probabilities are incorporated in a simple duality axiom inspired by observer participation in quantum theory. Transcending the classical notion of
Quantum mechanics with extended probabilities
The quantum mechanics of closed systems such as the universe is formulated using an extension of familiar probability theory that incorporates negative probabilities. Probabilities must be positive
Bayesian analog of Gleason’s theorem
We introduce a novel notion of probability within quantum history theories and give a Gleasonesque proof for these assignments. This involves introducing a tentative novel axiom of probability. We

Learning using the Born Rule
TLDR
A new probabilistic justification for popular algebraic algorithms, based on the Born rule, is unraveled, which includes two-class and multiple-class spectral clustering, and algorithms based on Euclidean distances.
Paraconsistent Foundations for Quantum Probability
It is argued that a fuzzy version of 4-truth-valued paraconsistent logic (with truth values corresponding to True, False, Both and Neither) can be approximately isomorphically mapped into the
