Foundations of Probability and Physics - 3

An international conference at Växjö University, June 7-12, 2004. Arranged by ICMM - International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences - at Växjö University, Sweden.

This is the third conference arranged by ICMM on probabilistic foundations of classical and quantum physics organizing. The first two conferences took place in 2000 and 2002. Some closely related conferences are Bohmian Mechanics 2000 and Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations 2001 and 2003.

One of the main aims for all 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), mathematicians and even philosophers interested in foundations.

Discussion list

The following problems will be discussed during this conference.

  1. Interpretations of probability, including frequency (von Mises) 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 classicalstatistical 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. Probability and relation between Micro and Macro. "Quantum"-interference for macroscopic systems.
