The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers whose work relates to the interests of Paul Busch who, while holding a Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowship (2017-18), passed away last year after a short illness.

Paul made many fundamental contributions to the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, in particular to the theory of measurement and uncertainty relations. A characteristic feature of his approach was to clarify conceptual issues besetting the foundations of quantum theory, by providing mathematically rigorous answers.

The meeting will run over two full days, with sessions dedicated to the topics which were central to Paul’s work.
