Abstract

A generalisation of the concepts utility and information value is given for the non-commutative case. In particular, states and utility operators are considered in dual linear spaces equipped with pre-orders, generated by a wedge of utility operators. It is shown that solutions to the information value problem give rise to an isotone Galois connection between the pre-ordered spaces. A particular form of this connection depends on the choice of a functional representing information resource. The properties of information resource are discussed from the point of information value theory, and an example is presented that generalises several known forms of classical and quantum information. Potential areas of application of information value in cognitive science, biology and quantum theory are discussed.
