Derivation of quantum probabilities from deterministic evolution

T. G. Philbin Physics and Astronomy Department, University of Exeter, Stocker Road, Exeter EX4 4QL, United Kingdom The predictions of quantum mechanics are probabilistic. Quantum probabilities are extracted using a postulate of the theory called the Born rule, the status of which is central to the “measurement problem” of quantum mechanics. Efforts to justify the Born rule from other physical principles, and... Read more →
