On wave particle duality
In a recent paper [J. Blackman and W. T. Hsiang, Phys. Essays 26, 34 (2013)], a mathematical model for quantum measurement was presented. The phenomenon of wave particle duality, which is introduced in every beginning course of quantum theory, can be explained using this model. Although the transformation of a wave into a particle as the result of a measurement of position is a special case of the general theory of measurement, it has historic interest and involves the use of a continuous spectrum, which was treated only casually in that paper.
