Quantization in Topos Quantum Theory: An Open Problem

  • Cecilia Flori
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 944)


In this Chapter we are interested in analysing how, if at all, different quantizations can be represented in Topos Quantum Theory. We already know from the work of [57] that it is indeed possible to define the concept of quantization within a topos. We would like to extend this program to incorporate all possible equivalent quantizations.
