Doctoral thesis: dagger and dilations in the category of von Neumann algebras

06 Apr 2018 [ preprint ]

A mathematical study of quantum computing, concentrating on two related, but independent topics.

First up are dilations, covered in chapter 2. In chapter 3 “diamond, andthen, dagger” we turn to the second topic: effectus theory. Both chapters, or rather parts, can be read separately and feature a comprehensive introduction of their own.
