Rethinking Quantum States: An Introduction to QBismPublic Deposited
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Quantum Bayesianism (QBism) is an alternative approach to quantum mechanics which aims to understand systems through their probability distributions rather than their wavefunctions. Measuring systems using symmetric informationally complete positive operator value measures (SIC-POVMs or SICs) allows this approach to be implemented in practice. This MQP will explore the ways in which QBism differs from traditional quantum mechanics, the structure of SICs, and some of their applications.
