Generalized contexts and consistent histories in quantum mechanics
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2014-05)
We analyze a restriction of the theory of consistent histories by imposing that a valid description of a physical system must include quantum histories which satisfy the consistency conditions for all states. We prove that ...
The Measurement Process in the Generalized Contexts Formalism for Quantum Histories
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2016-02)
In the interpretations of quantum mechanics involving quantum histories there is no collapse postulate and the measurement is considered as a quantum interaction between the measured system and the measured instrument. For ...
A Tannakian context for Galois theory
Strong similarities have been long observed between the Galois (Categories Galoisiennes) and the Tannaka (Categories Tannakiennes) theories of representation of groups. In this paper we construct an explicit (neutral) ...
The role of test context in latent inhibition of conditioned inhibition: Part of a search for general principles of associative interference
In two lick suppression experiments with rats, we assessed interference with behavior indicative of conditioned inhibition by a latent inhibition treatment as a function of test context. We asked what effect the test context ...
GENERALIZED HEAVISIDE FUNCTIONS IN THE COLOMBEAU THEORY CONTEXT
(Texas State Univ, 2012-06-04)
We defined generalized Heaviside functions for a variable x in R-n, and for variables (x, t) in R-n x R-m. Then study properties such as: composition, invertibility, and association relation (the weak equality). This work ...
Information literacy and the educational, technological, political and organizational contexts
(Univ Brasilia, Dept Ciencia Informacao, 2016-01-01)
Nowadays Information Literacy is studied in different contexts in society. So an article which demonstrates the main influences of this literacy contributes to the construction of researcher and general pubic complex ...
Quantum histories without contrary inferences
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2014-12)
In the consistent histories formulation of quantum theory it was shown that it is possible to retrodict contrary properties. We show that this problem do not appear in our formalism of generalized contexts for quantum histories
Context tree selection: A unifying view
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011)
Context tree models have been introduced by Rissanen in  as a parsimonious generalization of Markov models. Since then, they have been widely used in applied probability and statistics. The present paper investigates ...
