On classical representations of finite-dimensional quantum mechanics. (English) Zbl 0813.60004
Summary: In the case of a finite-dimensional Hilbert space, it is shown that quantum mechanics can be embedded into discrete classical probability theory. In particular, states can be represented as stochastic vectors and observables as random variables such that all probabilities and expectation values are given in classical terms.
