Negative probability in the framework of combined probability

Burgin, Mark;
Open Access English
  • Published: 30 May 2013
Negative probability has found diverse applications in theoretical physics. Thus, construction of sound and rigorous mathematical foundations for negative probability is important for physics. There are different axiomatizations of conventional probability. So, it is natural that negative probability also has different axiomatic frameworks. In the previous publications (Burgin, 2009; 2010), negative probability was mathematically formalized and rigorously interpreted in the context of extended probability. In this work, the axiomatic system that synthesizes conventional probability and negative probability is constructed in the form of combined probability. In a...
