Quantum but no mechanics --- an introduction to quantum probability theory
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 19 March 2008
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Klas Markström (Umeå)
Abstract : In this lecture I will give an introduction to the parts of quantum mechanics which can be viewed as an extension of classical probability theory instead of as a physical theory. This can be viewed as a parallel to the elation between classical probability theory and statistical mechanics. I will also discuss why, from a mathematical perspective, this is not just any extension of probability but in many ways instead the most natural one.
