Refutation of Gleason's Theorem © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

"Effectively, the theorem says that any legitimate probability measure on the space of measurement outcomes is generated by some quantum state." The equation as rendered is not tautologous. This means Gleason's theorem is not logically "a mathematical result which shows that the rule one uses to calculate probabilities in quantum physics follows logically [sic] from particular assumptions about how measurements are represented mathematically".
