The roads not taken: empty waves, wavefunction collapse and protective measurement in quantum theory

Peter Holland, University of Oxford In this contribution we shall be concerned with two classes of interpretations of quantum mechanics: the epistemological (the historically dominant view) and the ontological. The first views the wavefunction as just a repository of (statistical) information on a physical system. The other treats the wavefunction primarily as an element of physical reality, whilst generally retaining... Read more →
