Quantum sets and Gelfand spectra (Ortho-sets and Gelfand spectra)

  title={Quantum sets and Gelfand spectra (Ortho-sets and Gelfand spectra)},
  author={Chun Ding and Chi-Keung Ng},
Motivated by quantum states with zero transition probability, we introduce the notion of quantum set which is a set equipped with a relation 6=q satisfying: x 6=q y implies both x 6= y and y 6=q x. For a quantum set, a canonical complete ortholattice is constructed. This ortholattice is orthomodular if and only if the quantum set satisfies a canonical condition concerning subsets. This produces a surjective correspondence from the collection of quantum sets to the collection of complete… Expand


Toward quantum mathematics. I. From quantum set theory to universal quantum mechanics
We develop the old idea of von Neumann of a set theory with an internal quantum logic in a modern categorical guise [i.e., taking the objects of the category H of (pre-)Hilbert spaces and linear mapsExpand
Measure and Integration in Quantum Set Theory
If a quantum logic16, 18, 21 admits hidden variables in a certain sense, then the resulting structure is called a “generalized measurable space”. Such a structure is more general than a traditionalExpand
The Morita Theory of Quantum Graph Isomorphisms
We classify instances of quantum pseudo-telepathy in the graph isomorphism game, exploiting the recently discovered connection between quantum information and the theory of quantum automorphismExpand
Quantum Set Theory
This paper studies set theory based on quantum logic, which is the lattice of all closed linear subspaces of a Hilbert space and shows the fact that there are many complete Boolean algebras inside quantum logic. Expand
Propositional systems, Hilbert lattices and generalized hilbert spaces
With this chapter we provide a compact yet complete sur- vey of two most remarkable "representation theorems": every argue- sian projective geometry is represented by an essentially unique vec- torExpand
Almost all trees have quantum symmetry
From the work of Erdős and Rényi from 1963, it is known that almost all graphs have no symmetry. In 2017, Lupini, Mančinska, and Roberson proved a quantum counterpart: Almost all graphs have noExpand
Quantum measures and spaces
This book has evolved from lectures and seminars given by the author at different academic institutions during the years 1983-1998. It can be divided into four parts. Noncommutative measure theory isExpand
Multipliers of C∗-algebras☆
Abstract For a C ∗ -algebra A let M ( A ) denote the two-sided multipliers of A in its enveloping von Neumann algebra. A complete description of M ( A ) is given in the case where the spectrum of AExpand
Quantum Isometry Groups of 0- Dimensional Manifolds
Quantum isometry groups of spectral triples associated with approximately finite-dimensional C*-algebras are shown to arise as inductive limits of quantum symmetry groups of corresponding truncatedExpand
For a C*-algebra A, G. Pedersen defined the concept of universal measurability for self-adjoint elements of A**, the universal enveloping algebra of A. Although he was unable to show that U, the setExpand
