Some thought-experiments involving macrosystems as illustrations of various interpretations of quantum mechanics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

I consider various experiments related to the so-called "macroscopic quantum coherence" experiment, which are probably at present in the class of "thought" experiment but are likely to become realistic in the next few decades. I explore the way in which outcomes consistent with the predictions of quantum mechanics would be interpreted by an adherent of, respectively, the Copenhagen, statistical, and Bohmian interpretations of the formalism.
