ICMT Seminar: "How to deduce physical theories from expectation values"

Speaker Denys Bondar, Princeton

Time: 12 p.m.

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

In this talk, we will provide an answer to the question: “What kind of observations (i.e., expectation values) and assumptions are minimally needed to formulate a physical theory?” Our answer to this question leads to the new systematic approach of Operational Dynamical Modeling (ODM), which allows to deduce equations of motions from time evolution of observables. Using ODM, we are not only able to re-derive well-known physical theories (quantum mechanics, Koopman-von Neumann classical mechanics etc), but also solve open problems in the realm of open quantum dynamics.
