Quantum Physics, Fuzzy Sets and Logic

Steps Towards a Many-Valued Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

This Brief presents steps towards elaborating a new interpretation of quantum mechanics based on a specific version of Lukasiewicz infinite-valued logic. It begins with a short survey of main interpretations of quantum mechanics already proposed, as well as various models of many-valued logics and previous attempts to apply them for the description of quantum phenomena.

Om boka

This Brief presents steps towards elaborating a new interpretation of quantum mechanics based on a specific version of Lukasiewicz infinite-valued logic. It begins with a short survey of main interpretations of quantum mechanics already proposed, as well as various models of many-valued logics and previous attempts to apply them for the description of quantum phenomena. The prospective many-valued interpretation of quantum mechanics is soundly based on a theorem concerning the isomorphic representation of Birkhoff-von Neumann quantum logic in the form of a special Lukasiewicz infinite-valued logic endowed with partially defined conjunctions and disjunctions.
