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
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 ...
The Formalism of Generalized Contexts and Decay Processes
The formalism of generalized contexts for quantum histories is used to investigatethe possibility to consider the survival probability as the probability of no decay property at a given time conditional to no decay property ...

What is quantum information?
In the present article we address the question 'What is quantum information?' from a conceptual viewpoint. In particular, we argue that there seems to be no sufficiently good reasons to accept that quantum information is ...
I argue for a four dimensional, non-dynamical view of space-time, where becoming is not an intrinsic property of reality. This view has many features in common with the Parmenidean conception of the universe. I discuss ...
