# THE INTERPRETATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS*

@article{Born1953THEIO, title={THE INTERPRETATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS*}, author={Max Born}, journal={The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science}, year={1953}, volume={4}, pages={95 - 106} }

THE following pages are a reply to Erwin Schrodinger's article, ' Are There Quantum Jumps ? Parts I and II ' , published in August and November 1952, in this Journal. A discussion on this subject was to be held in the meeting of the Philosophy of Science Group on 8th December 1952, and I was asked to open it. I accepted this honour rather reluctantly, for I find it awkward to display in public a disagreement on a fundamental question with one of my best and oldest friends. Yet I had several…

When surveying the literature, one often gets the impression that Schrodinger held, in succession, four distinct interpretations of quantum mechanics, and that, except for the one he borrowed from…

The trouble with the philosophy of quantum mechanics, I'm told, is that as soon as you've found a position, you lose your momentum.' Three very different books by philosophers on quantum mechanics…

The problem of measurement is often considered an inconsistency inside the quantum formalism. Many attempts to solve (or to dissolve) it have been made since the inception of quantum mechanics. The…

As cutting-edge experiments display ever more extreme forms of non-classical behavior, the prevailing view on the interpretation of quantum mechanics appears to be gradually changing. A (highly…

It is found that using this particular many-worlds theory as a physical foundation for quantum computation gives several distinct advantages over other interpretations, and over not interpreting quantum theory at all.
