The Structure of Quantum Stochastic Processes with Finite Markov OrderOct 25 2018Nov 10 2018Non-Markovian quantum processes exhibit different memory effects when measured in different ways; an unambiguous characterization of memory length requires accounting for the sequence of instruments applied to probe the system dynamics. This instrument-specific ... More
CP divisibility does not mean MarkovianityJan 16 2019In the classical domain, it is well-known that divisibility does not imply that a stochastic process is Markovian. However, for quantum processes, divisibility is often considered to be synonymous with Markovianity. We show that completely positive (CP) ... More

Space-Time and ProbabilityDec 14 2001Special relativity is most naturally formulated as a theory of space-time geometry, but within the space-time framework probability apears to be at best an epistemic notion - a matter of what can be known, not of the status of events in themselves. However, ... More
