In previous articles, we presented a derivation of Born’s rule and unitary transforms in Quantum Mechanics (QM), from a simple set of axioms built upon a physical phenomenology of quantization—physically, the structure of QM results of an interplay between the quantized number of “modalities” accessible to a quantum system, and the continuum of “contexts” required to define these modalities. In the present article, we provide a unified picture of quantum measurements within our approach, and justify further the role of the system–context dichotomy, and of quantum interferences. We also discuss links with stochastic quantum thermodynamics, and with algebraic quantum theory. View Full-Text
