Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 65

Description:
From a general study of the relations between models, meaning the set of variables with their mathematical properties, and the measures they represent, a new formalism is developed, which covers the scope of Quantum Mechanics. In this paper we prove that the states of any physical system can be represented in a Hilbert space, that a self-adjoint operator is associated to any observable, that the result of a measure must be an eigen value of the operator and appear with the usual probability law.

A qualitative representation of microstates is established quite independently of the quantum mechanical mathematical formalism. The foundations of an intelligible reconstruction of the Hilbert-Dirac formulation of Quantum Mechanics is developed.

Here, we derive the formalism of QM from well-motivated epistemic principles. A key assumption is that in a proper physical theory, the introduction of entities or distinctions that are unknowable in principle is in conflict with the theory.
