The notion of (non)contextuality pertains to sets of properties measured one subset (context) at a time. We extend this notion to include so-called inconsistently connected systems, in which the measurements of a given property in different contexts may have different distributions, due to contextual biases in experimental design or physical interactions (signaling): a system of measurements has a maximally noncontextual description if they can be imposed a joint distribution on in which the measurements of any one property in different contexts are equal to each other with the maximal probability allowed by their different distributions. We derive necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such a description in a broad class of systems including Klyachko-Can-Binicioğlu-Shumvosky-type (KCBS), EPR-Bell-type, and Leggett-Garg-type systems. Because these conditions allow for inconsistent connectedness, they are applicable to real experiments. We illustrate this by analyzing an experiment by Lapkiewicz and colleagues aimed at testing contextuality in a KCBS-type system. ...

Being able to provide sufficiently good care for older people : care workers and their working conditions in Finland Mathew Puthenparambil, Jiby (Policy Press, 2023)This study examines whether care workers in Finland feel able to provide adequate care for older people and analyses the working conditions that limit them from providing it. One third of the respondents felt that they ...
Towards Process Centered Architecting for Quantum Software Systems Ahmad, Aakash; Khan, Arif Ali; Waseem, Muhammad; Fahmideh, Mahdi; Mikkonen, Tommi (IEEE, 2022)Quantum Software Engineering (QSE) is a recent trend - focused on unifying the principles of quantum mechanics and practices of software engineering - to design, develop, validate, and evolve quantum age software systems ...
Theory of phase-mixing amplification in an optomechanical system Ockeloen-Korppi, C. F.; Heikkilä, Tero; Sillanpää, M. A.; Massel, Francesco (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd., 2017)The investigation of the ultimate limits imposed by quantum mechanics on amplification represents an important topic both on a fundamental level and from the perspective of potential applications. We discuss here a novel ...
Initial conditions in AA and pA collisions Lappi, Tuomas (EDP Sciences, 2017)A full understanding of the spacetime evolution of the QCD matter created in a heavy ion collision requires understanding the properties of the initial stages. In the weak coupling picture these are dominated by classical ...
Noiseless Quantum Measurement and Squeezing of Microwave Fields Utilizing Mechanical Vibrations Ockeloen-Korppi, C. F.; Damskägg, E.; Pirkkalainen, J-M.; Heikkilä, Tero; Massel, Francesco; Sillanpää, Mika (American Physical Society, 2017)A process which strongly amplifies both quadrature amplitudes of an oscillatory signal necessarily adds noise. Alternatively, if the information in one quadrature is lost in phase-sensitive amplification, it is possible ...
