The current quantity has its origins in a couple of casual workshops held on the unfastened college of Brussels, in June of 1998 and will of 1999, named "Current study 1 in Operational Quantum Logic". those introduced jointly mathematicians and physicists operating in operational quantum good judgment and comparable components, in addition to a couple of philosophers of technology, for a unprecedented chance to debate contemporary advancements during this box. After a few dialogue, it was once determined that, instead of generating a quantity of convention complaints, we'd attempt to manage the conferees to supply a collection of accomplished survey papers, which might not just document on contemporary advancements in quantum common sense, but additionally offer an academic evaluation of the topic appropriate for an non-specialist viewers. The ensuing quantity offers an summary of the suggestions and strategies utilized in present learn in quantum common sense, considered either as a department of mathemati cal physics and as a space of natural arithmetic. the 1st 1/2 the e-book is worried with the algebraic aspect of the topic, and specifically the speculation of orthomodular lattices and posets, impression algebras, and so forth. within the moment 1/2 the booklet, certain cognizance is given to specific equipment and to connections with theoretical laptop technology. on the 1999 workshop, we have been lucky to listen to 3 first-class lectures by means of David J. Foulis, represented right here through contributions. Dave's paintings, spanning forty years, has helped to outline, and keeps to reshape, the sector of quantum good judgment.
