# The Born Rule as Dutch-Book Coherence (and only a little more)

@inproceedings{Debrota2020TheBR, title={The Born Rule as Dutch-Book Coherence (and only a little more)}, author={John Debrota and Christopher A. Fuchs and Jacques L. Pienaar and Blake C. Stacey}, year={2020} }

The subjective Bayesian interpretation of probability asserts that the rules of the probability calculus follow from the normative principle of Dutch-book coherence: A decision-making agent should not assign probabilities such that a series of monetary transactions based on those probabilities would lead them to expect a sure loss. Similarly, the subjective Bayesian interpretation of quantum mechanics (QBism) asserts that the Born rule is a normative rule in analogy to Dutch-book coherence, but…

QBISM: AN ECO-PHENOMENOLOGY OF QUANTUM PHYSICS

- Philosophy
- 2022

A discrepancy between the instrumentalist and the realist inclinations of QBism, or between its experiential and interactional concepts of measurement, has been repeatedly noticed. Here, we show that…

SICs and Bell Inequalities

Close study of three sporadic SICs reveals an illuminating relation between different ways of quantifying the extent to which quantum theory deviates from classical expectations. In brief, the SIC…

Quantum and Classical Bayesian Agents

- PhysicsQuantum

We describe a general approach to modeling rational decision-making agents who adopt either quantum or classical mechanics based on the Quantum Bayesian (QBist) approach to quantum theory. With the…

Quantum-Bayesian Coherence

- Philosophy
- 2009

It is argued that the Born Rule should be seen as an empirical addition to Bayesian reasoning itself, and how to view it as a normative rule in addition to usual Dutch-book coherence is shown.

Bayesian Conditioning, the Reflection Principle, and Quantum Decoherence ∗

- Philosophy
- 2012

The probabilities a Bayesian agent assigns to a set of events typically change with time, for instance when the agent updates them in the light of new data. In this paper we address the question of…

Quantum probabilities as Bayesian probabilities

- Philosophy
- 2002

In the Bayesian approach to probability theory, probability quantifies a degree of belief for a single trial, without any a priori connection to limiting frequencies. In this paper, we show that,…

QBism, the Perimeter of Quantum Bayesianism

- Physics

This article summarizes the Quantum Bayesian point of view of quantum mechanics, with special emphasis on the view's outer edges---dubbed QBism. QBism has its roots in personalist Bayesian…

Quantum Mechanics as Quantum Information (and only a little more)

In this paper, I try once again to cause some good-natured trouble. The issue remains, when will we ever stop burdening the taxpayer with conferences devoted to the quantum foundations? The suspicion…

Notwithstanding Bohr, the Reasons for QBism

Without Niels Bohr, QBism would be nothing. But QBism is not Bohr. This paper attempts to show that, despite a popular misconception, QBism is no minor tweak to Bohr's interpretation of quantum…

Symmetric informationally complete measurements identify the irreducible difference between classical and quantum systems

We describe a general procedure for associating a minimal informationally-complete quantum measurement (or MIC) and a set of linearly independent post-measurement quantum states with a purely…

Quantum states and generalized observables: a simple proof of Gleason's theorem.

A simple proof of the result, analogous to Gleason's theorem, that any quantum state is given by a density operator, and a von Neumann-type argument against noncontextual hidden variables is obtained.

Abstract
We reconstruct quantum theory starting from the premise that, as Asher Peres remarked, “Unperformed experiments have no results.” The tools of quantum information theory, and in particular…
