Is the notion of a fuzzy reality coherent?

But without these interpretations, to take position as an example, a particle does not have a definite position in space at any time before this measurement. Without these "interpretations",...

About quantum interference: space and time

It was Schroedinger who considered the psi-function as the main mathematical tool to formalize quantum mechanics (QM). Influenced by de Broglie’s concept of matter-waves Schroedinger searched for a ...
