in a double slit single particle interference experiment:
when we try to find out whichway the "wavefunction collapses"...however does the wave function "start to form" again once the photon/electron leaves the slits? or is sending sending the photon through another set of double (or triple, quad etc) slits/paths the only way to regenerate the wavefunction? we know that a wavefunction is a mathematical/theoretical tool and no one knows what happens in reality yet...however how is the wavefunction regeneration mathematically/theoretically viewed within the concept?
