Reconsideration of Foundations - 2

International Conference in Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-2, Växjö University - June 1-6, 2003, arranged by ICMM International Center for Mathematical Modeling in physics, technique and cognitive sciences, Växjö University, Sweden, and with support from the Swedish Research Council, EU-network: ”Quantum Probability and Applications” and Växjö University.

The main aim of this Conference is to reconsider foundations of quantum theory. There will be organised a special session “Quantum Logic meets Quantum Information”.

  • The following problems will be discussed during the Conference:
  • Analysis of the creation of the quantum formalism: quantum probability; quantum logic, quantum information.
  • Interpretations of wave function, relation to foundations of probability theory. Superposition principle.
  • Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment. Bell’s inequality: realism/nonlocality/contextualism?
  • Quantum information and teleportation, computing and cryptography
  • Pilot-wave theory, nonlocality. De Broglie double-solution theory.
  • Local realistic models, hidden variables.
  • Quantum mechanics: a perculiarity of nature or just a special statistical method of the description of nature?
  • Evidences of violations of quantum mechanical description?
  • Contextual approach to quantum probability
  • Discrete deterministic quantum models.
