Causality gets entangled

Matty J Hoban

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Understanding the role of causality in quantum theory is a growing research direction in quantum information and the foundations of quantum theory. One particular area is to understand generalizations of quantum theory where there is an indefinite causal order between various operations. Building on recent work developing the process matrix formalism, Araújo et al (2015 New J. Phys. 17 [] 102001 ) give formal tools to analyse how causally indefinite processes can be by drawing inspiration from entanglement theory. This approach draws together concepts in quantum information with more speculative ideas in the foundations of quantum theory.
