On the Interpretation of non-Kolmogorovian Probability Theory
Conferencia; First Chilean Conference on the Philosophy of Physics; 2019
We argue for considering quantum probabilities as the natural probabilistic assignments for rational agents dealing with contextual probabilistic models. This is done in the framework of generalized pobabilistic models for which states not necessarily obey Kolmogorov?s axioms of probability. According to this perspective, the formal structure of quantum probabilities as a non-Boolean probabilistic calculus is endowed with a natural interpretation. In this setting, we explore the possibility of defining information measures and discuss the status of information theory and information-based principles, such as MaxEnt.
