Complementarity and the pathological statistics of the quantum impossible

31 Oct 2017  ·  Bartolomé Irene, Luis Alfredo ·

Standard quantum physics prevents the existence of a joint statistics for complementary observables. Nevertheless, a joint distribution for complementary observables can be derived from their imperfect simultaneous measurement followed by a suitable data inversion... Quantumness is reflected then in the pathologies of the inferred distribution. We apply this program to the paradigmatic example of complementarity: the wave-particle duality in a Young interferometer. read more
