ABSTRACT

Ever since its development in the 1920’s, quantum mechanics has been the object of numerous discussions, which are still going on, and will probably keep going on for some time. At the onset, one should agree on one point, namely, that quantum mechanics works extremely well, and allows us to predict the most minute aspects of, say, atomic spectra, with incredible accuracy. The problem is not there, but rather, lies in its interpretation. What is the meaning of the wave function, what is performed in a measurement, etc., are questions which have fascinated, and still fascinate, many physicists. Some people make a living out of discussing these problems, but for most of us, this is a hobby, that we talk about during coffee breaks or in the evening, around a pitcher of beer. I am certainly not an expert on the foundations of quantum mechanics. But over the last few years, I have read a substantial amount of papers on this topic, and have realized that during my studies I had been “brain-washed” into accepting things which I should not have… at least, not readily. I have come to understand that we live in a very strange world indeed, where the most trivial, self-evident truths don’t apply. In this lecture, I would like to explain why it is so. More... »
