Foundations of Probability and Physics, 4

An international conference at Växjö University. Arranged by ICMM - International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences - at Växjö University, Sweden. Supported by the EU-network Quantum Probability and Applications.

This is the fourth conference arranged by ICMM on probabilistic foundations of classical and quantum physics. The first three conferences took place in 2000,
2002, and 2004. Some closely related conferences are Bohmian Mechanics 2000 and Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations 2001, 2003, and 2005.

The main aim of these conferences is to understand the role that probability plays in the foundations of physics, theoretical as well as experimental, classical as well as quantum.

During previous conferences we were lucky to collect fruitful mixtures of physicists (including experimenters), mathematicians and even philosophers interested in foundations.

Probabilistic foundations of quantum mechanics, information theory, quantum computing, cryptography, and teleportation are important topics at the conference. Quantum fluctuations (in the form of SED or other approaches to stochastic quantum mechanics) play a fundamental role (especially in debates). Even adherents of Bohmian mechanics and the many-worlds interpretation are warmly welcome.

We also hope to have talks on foundations of probability itself, measurement theory, completeness and incompleteness of quantum mechanics, macroscopic quantum systems, experiments on quantum nonlocality and locality, Bell´s inequality, quantum probability, entanglement, quantum computing and cryptography technologies, philosophic problems, and mathematical formalism. A special session devoted to Bayesian and von Mises approaches in classical and quantum probability will be organized.
