We extend the topos-theoretic treatment given in previous papers of assigningvalues to quantities in quantum theory, and of related issues such as theKochen–Specker theorem. This extension has two main parts: the use of vonNeumann algebras as a base category and the relation of our generalized valuationsto (i) the assignment to quantities of intervals of real numbers and (ii) the ideaof a subobject of the coarse-graining presheaf.
