The realistic interpretation of quantum mechanics

4th International Conference on Physics

September 17-18, 2018 | Berlin, Germany

Tsinghua University, China

Keynote: J Phys Chem Biophys

Abstract :

The interpretation of the wave function in quantum mechanics has been a subject for debate ever since quantum mechanics was established. There are many interpretations of quantum mechanics and the dominant one is the Copenhagen interpretation where the wave function is a mere mathematical description. After many years of research in quantum information and teaching of quantum mechanics, the author gradually formulated his own interpretation, a realistic interpretation (REIN) of quantum mechanics. In this keynote talk, the author will present in details the main points of the REIN. In particular, an explanation of the measurement is given. An encounter delayed choice experiment is described. In many aspects, REIN is more natural than other interpretation. Comparisons with other interpretations will also be discussed.
