On the interpretation of states as non-commutative measures in generalized probabilistic models
Workshop; International Workshop: Identity, indistinguishability and non-locality in quantum physics; 2017
We discuss generalized probabilistic models for which states do not necessarily obey Kolmogorov?s axioms of probability [1]. This is the case for standard quantum mechanics, where Type I factors are used. Other factors appear in the algebraic formulations of relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum statistical mechanics [2,3]. In this talk we discuss the relationship between properties and probabilistic measures in generalized probabilistic models, and explore some possible interpretations of these measures in terms of a modal ontology of properties [4,5].[1] Holik, F., Saenz, M., Plastino, A.: A discussion on the origin of quantum probabilities.
