First iWorkshop on the Meaning of the Wave Function

First iWorkshop on the Meaning of the Wave Function

During recent years, there is increasing interest in the ontological status and meaning of the wave function, and it seems that there is even a shift in research focus from the measurement problem to the problem of interpreting the wave function. This motivates us to organize an online workshop on the meaning of the wave function. The workshop aims to… Read more →
