  • It is shown that from the expectation values of obervables, which can be measured for a single system using protective measurements, the linear structure, inner product, and observables in the Hilbert space can be reconstructed. A universal method of measuring the wave function of a single particle using its gravitational field is given. Protective measurement is generalized to the measurement of a degenerate state and to many particle systems. The question of whether the wave function is real… CONTINUE READING
