Foundations of Probabilities and Physics - 2

An international conference at Växjö University, June 2-7, 2002. Arranged by ICMM - International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences - at Växjö University, Sweden.

This is the second conference on probabilistic foundations of classical and quantum physics organized by the International Center (the first one took place in November 2000 and we would also like to mention the closely related conferences “Bohmian Mechanics-2000” and “Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations”-2001).

One of the main aims of these conferences is to understand the role that PROBABILITY plays in foundations of physics, theoretical as well as experimental. During previous conferences we were lucky to collect fruitful mixtures of physicists (including experimenters) and mathematicians interested in foundations.

The following problems will be discussed:

  1. Interpretations of probability (including frequency probability theory, complexity, randomness and so on…;negative, complex and p-adic generalisations of probability and other non-Kolmogorovean probabilistic models).
  2. Probabilistic foundations of quantum mechanics.
  3. Probability in statistical physics; Entropy; quantum-like models in classical statistical physics.
  4. Quantum Probability
  5. Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, Bell's inequality, locality, reality, probability.
  6. Probability and Quantum computers.
  7. Quantum Information and Entropy.
  8. Probability and Quantum Cryptography.
  9. Paradoxes of probability theory and Paradoxes of quantum mechanics.
  10. Probability and relation between Micro and Macro. “Quantum”-interference for macroscopic systems.
