Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As quantum information theory advances, as new experimental quantum protocols are devised, and as the reality of practical quantum computing approaches, it is important to match these developments with appropriate statistical and data analysis methods. For this Special Issue the topic is understood to cover: advances in the probabilistic foundations of quantum mechanics; new developments for statistical methods and data analysis of quantum outcomes; quantum information perspectives on the analysis quantum outcomes and experiment; examination of classical statistical methods that have possible application to quantum outcomes and decisions, such as quantum based statistical learning machines, and Bayesian quantum state estimation. The emphasis in this Special Issue will be on experiment and applications of theory that advance our understanding of what quantum data can mean and how it might be used. More speculative revisions of the foundations of quantum mechanics are not obviously included in this discussion, unless grounded in current experiment or near term realizations of the proposed ideas and methods.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
