New study highlights importance of context in physical theoriesIn his study Contextuality of General Probabilistic Theories Dr Shahandeh examines which structural property of a theory like quantum mechanics makes it subject to contextuality. He said: “In this work we determine the geometric features that give rise to non-contextuality or contextuality of a physical theory. Physicist Dr Farid Shahandeh said: “Imagine a physical theory in which the explanation of the trajectory of an apple falling from a tree differs for Gala and Pink Lady. But, we know that if we try to interpret quantum mechanics in classical terms, it becomes contextual, and therefore counter-intuitive. “Any seemingly unnecessary and senseless parameter like this adds context to a theory’s description of a physical phenomenon. “Fortunately, classical theories are not about contextuality. It has just been published in PRX Quantum, a prestigious journal of the American Physical Society.
