Compatibility or: How We Learned to Stop Worrying about Commutativity

Commutativity in quantum mechanics is historically identified with the possibility of two (or more) measurements originating from a single setup; it is a sufficient and necessary condition for compatibility of observables (represented by self-adjoint operators). The development of the theory, however, led to the mathematical framework … Continue reading
