Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics and Measurement Problem
Abstract:We present a panoramic view on various attempts to “solve“ the problems of quantum measurement and macro-objectivation, i.e., of the transition from a probabilistic quantum mechanic microscopic world to a deterministic classical macroscopic world. After a general introduction we describe in some detail both schemes that require some change or extension of the formalism (as hidden variable models and spontaneous collapse models) and those that do not introduce a real collapse of the wave function (as many worlds models, decoherence and quantum histories approaches, informational and modal interpretation, relational quantum mechanics, etc.). A large bibliography is provided for the readers who want to examine closely these studies.
