ABSTRACT

The usual formulation of quantum theory is rather abstract. In recent work I have shown that we can, nevertheless, obtain quantum theory from five reasonable axioms. Four of these axioms are obviously consistent with both classical probability theory and quantum theory. The remaining axiom requires that there exists a continuous reversible transformation between any two pure states. The requirement of continuity rules out classical probability theory. In this paper I will summarize the main points of this new approach. I will leave out the details of the proof that these axioms are equivalent to the usual formulation of quantum theory (for these see reference [1]). More... »
