If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Quantum Physics and Statistical Causal Models

This talk introduces quantum causal modelling and describes existing quantum causal discovery methods. Important distinctions between familiar classical causal concepts and their quantum counterparts will be discussed, and example use cases for quantum causal discovery presented. Some potential opportunities for classical causal discovery experts to contribute to this fledgling field will also be outlined.

Hi, Sally. Thanks for an interesting talk. As well as watching it, I've looked at the paper of yours that you mention, "Updating the Born rule", in NewJPhys, because it seemed to intersect with a new paper of mine in JPhysA, "The collapse of a quantum state as a joint probability construction". I'm sorry not to have known of your paper earlier.

In Figure 1 in your paper, you say, as I...

Hi Peter, interesting the collpase quantum state, try to superimpose the deeper parameters that I explained you about this DM and DE and consider these 3 series of spheres and after consider the theory of informations , consider the volumes and densities for the informations and their motions oscillations and a correlated lifetime for them and after consider the non commutativity of Alain Connes in details mathematically speakig for all this , it can be relevant to reach unknowns , regards
