What is a quantal reality?
Speaker(s): Rafael Sorkin
Abstract: I will rephrase the question, "What is a quantal reality?" as "What is a quantal history?" (the word history having here the same meaning as in the phrase sum-over-histories). The answer I will propose modifies the rules of logical inference in order to resolve a ... read more

Operational structures as a foundation for probabilistic theories
Speaker(s): Lucien Hardy
Abstract: Work on formulating general probabilistic theories in an operational context has tended to concentrate on the probabilistic aspects (convex cones and so on) while remaining relatively naive about how the operational structure is built up (combining operations to form composite systems, and so on). I... read more

Quantum analogues of Bayes' theorem, sufficient statistics and the pooling problem
Speaker(s): Robert Spekkens
Abstract: The notion of a conditional probability is critical for Bayesian reasoning. Bayes’ theorem, the engine of inference, concerns the inversion of conditional probabilities. Also critical are the concepts of conditional independence and sufficient statistics. The conditional density operator i... read more
