Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent years have witnessed mutually beneficial interactions between theoretical ideas arising from quantum information science and developments in the foundations of quantum theory. In this Special Issue, we invite both original and review articles related to mathematical and theoretical aspects of quantum information and foundations, with particular emphasis on their intersection or on quantum measurement. However, we will also be pleased to receive high-quality papers on related topics.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

It is known that, in quantum theory, measurements may suppress Hamiltonian dynamics of a system. A famous example is the ‘Quantum Zeno Effect’. This is the phenomena that, if one performs the measurements M times asking whether the system is in the same state as the one at the initial time until the fixed measurement time t, then survival probability tends to 1 by taking the limit M. This is the case for fixed measurement time t. It is known that, if one takes measurement time infinite at appropriate scaling, the ‘Quantum Zeno Effect’ does not occur and the effect of Hamiltonian dynamics emerges. In the present paper, we consider the long time repeated measurements and the dynamics of quantum many body systems in the scaling where the effect of measurements and dynamics are balanced. We show that the stochastic process, called the symmetric simple exclusion process (SSEP), is obtained from the repeated and long time measurements of configuration of particles in finite lattice fermion systems. The emerging stochastic process is independent of potential and interaction of the underlying Hamiltonian of the system. Full article
