Distinguished Lectures and Public Lectures: Gambling with classical or quantum dice: a guided tour from classical probability to quantum channels

Presented by Dimitri Petritis, University of Rennes, France

6 May 2015 11:00 in CM101


Starting from a simple example (sharp gambles with a classical dice) we shall describe progressively more involved systems (like unsharp gambles with classical dice and hidden Markov chains). Then a physical experiment showing the insufficiency of classical probability to describe Nature will be explained and the notion of quantum probability and of repeated unsharp quantum measurements will be introduced. We shall conclude with a limit theorem concerning repeated quantum measurements.
