Abstract

The physical interpretation in Chapter  8 of the ‘wave’ function \( \psi \) is not complete. We still need to clarify how \( \psi \) is related to experiments, that is, to measurements. So we continue this topic. To see the basic idea clearly without getting bogged down in technicalities, we present a simple, though representative, example. Later on in Chapter  16 we will consider this idea in its full generality.
