# Probability Theory as a Physical Theory Gives Insight in Big Topics. Questions to Mathematicians. (arXiv:1811.10992v2 [physics.pop-ph] UPDATED)

There is something puzzling about probability theory: does it describe

individual events (or systems), or rather ensembles of similar systems? At any

rate, probabilities are always measured on ensembles. In this sense probability

theory, as a physical theory, is unique: other physical theories describe

individual measurements and individual systems. Here it is argued that

probability theory can be seen as a general theory of causality (or

determinism), so dealing with the underlying causal connections between

systems. This simple be it radical interpretation suggests new avenues of

research for fundamental issues in physics and mathematics. For example, it

suggests 1) a generalization of the Central Limit Theorem; and 2) a different

approach to address the unification of quantum mechanics and relativity theory.

Throughout the article precise questions to mathematicians are formulated to

advance this research.
