  • n. A concept introduced in order to apply quantum corrections to classical statistical mechanics


quasi- +‎ probability (Wiktionary)


  • In this work we show that the spherical topology of polarization imposes a limit on how much squeezing can occur, leading to the quasi-probability distributions wrapping around the sphere-a phenomenon we term 'over-squeezing'.

  • The symmetry properties of polarization imply that the measured triphoton states can be most naturally represented by quasi-probability distributions on the surface of a sphere.
