Title:A recipe for post-classical probabilistic theories
Seminar:Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar
Speaker:Alex Wilce, Susquehanna University
I describe a simple recipe for building (generally, non-classical) probabilistic models having strong symmetry properties from group-theoretic data. Where it can be made functorial, this construction becomes a recipe for symmetric monoidal categories of such models. A version of quantum mechanics arises as a special case.
