Abstract

[In standard quantum theory, the projection postulate plays a crucial but controversial role: crucial, because standard quantum theory makes contact with physics and the results of experiments via the measurement axioms of quantum theory, the most important of which is the projection postulate; and controversial, because the projection postulate appears to conflict with Schrödinger’s equation. This apparent conflict is the notorious measurement problem of quantum mechanics, or, what amounts to the same thing, the paradox of ►Schrödinger’s cat.
