Problem of classical and nonclassical probabilities

  • Enrico G. Beltrametti
  • Maciej J. Maczyński


A characterization of classical and nonclassical probabilities expressed in terms of some inequalities between multidimensional orS-probability is given. A new criterion (not referring to correlation probabilities) for nonclassicality of the range of a completeS-probability measure on an event system is proposed.
