Learning outcomes

To learn modern applications of quantum mechanics and to understand its operational axiomatic basis.


The course consists of two equal parts. The first part (4 op) gives a surveys on axiomatic reconstruction of quantum mechanics through the coordinatization of generalized geometries and a theorem of Soler. The second part (4 op) presents some recent results on operational quantum physics.
