I cannot define the real problem, therefore I suspect there is no real problem, but I’m not sure there’s no real problem.

Richard Feynman

Max Born and quantum probabilities

In this chapter, we will take a short break from our survey of successful applications of quantum mechanics to take a closer look at the foundations of this great edifice of modern physics. In a sense, we are now disobeying Feynman’s warning about the results of the double ...
