Foundations of Probability and Physics
Proceedings of the ConferenceeBook - 2001
In this volume, leading experts in experimental as well as theoretical physics (both classical and quantum) and probability theory give their views on many intriguing (and still mysterious) problems regarding the probabilistic foundations of physics. The problems discussed during the conference include Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, Bell's inequality, realism, nonlocality, role of Kolmogorov model of probability theory in quantum physics, von Mises frequency theory, quantum information, computation, "quantum effects" in classical physics. Contents: Locality and Bell's Inequality (L Accardi & M Regoli); Refutation of Bell's Theorem (G Adenier); Forcing Discretization and Determination in Quantum History Theories (B Coecke); Some Remarks on Hardy Functions Associated with Dirichlet Series (W Ehm); Ensemble Probabilistic Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics without the Thermodynamic Limit (D H E Gross); An Approach to Quantum Probability (S Gudder); Innovation Approach to Stochastic Processes and Quantum Dynamics (T Hida); Origin of Quantum Probabilities (A Khrennikov); "Complementarity" or Schizophrenia: Is Probability in Quantum Mechanics Information or Onta? (A F Kracklauer); A Probabilistic Inequality for the Kochen-Specker Paradox (J-A Larsson); Quantum Stochastics. The New Approach to the Description of Quantum Measurements (E Loubenets); Is Random Event a Core Question? Some Remarks and a Proposal (P Rocchi); Quantum Cryptography in Space and Bell's Theorem (I Volovich); and other papers. Readership: Graduate students and researchers in quantum physics, mathematical physics, theoretical physics, stochastic processes, and probability & statistics.
