Foundations of q-physics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We present the standard q-theory1 while, at each element, striving for the maximum likeness to Chap. 2 on Foundations of classical physics. We go slightly beyond the traditional treatment and, e.g., we define non-projective q-measurements as well as the phenomenon of entanglement. Leaf through Chap. 2 again, and compare!
