    • Causal Models for a Quantum World 

      Ried, Katja Stephanie (University of Waterloo, 2016-05-18)
      Quantum mechanics has achieved unparalleled success as an operational theory, describing a wide range of experiments to remarkable accuracy. However, the physical foundations on which it rests remain as puzzling as they ...
    • Conical Designs and Categorical Jordan Algebraic Post-Quantum Theories 

      Graydon, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-06)
      Physical theories can be characterized in terms of their state spaces and their evolutive equations. The kinematical structure and the dynamical structure of finite dimensional quantum theory are, in light of the ...
    • An estimation theoretic approach to quantum realizability problems 

      Fraser, Thomas (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-27)
      This thesis seeks to develop a general method for solving so-called quantum realizability problems, which are questions of the following form: under which conditions does there exist a quantum state exhibiting a given ...
    • Guiding our interpretation of quantum theory by principles of causation and inference 

      Schmid, David (University of Waterloo, 2021-07-07)
      A key aim of quantum foundations is to characterize the sense in which nature goes beyond classical physics. Understanding nonclassicality is one of our best avenues towards finding a satisfactory interpretation of quantum ...
