Ok so when observed, the wavefunction collapses, can someone delicately explain the maths behind it? Or send me to a page with a coherent explanation, that is followable for a first year undergrad? I've covered Eigenvectors briefly in my algebra course last semester and i find that the explanations focus on some eigenvector stuff but i don't completely understand what an eigenvector is, just how to get an eigen vector/value. All i know is that the wave function decreases with path difference and therefore decreases the probability of the particle being at that particular point. But the fact that randomly when a detector interacts with the particle the wavefunction collapses and it acts as a classical particle is confusing me. Whyy? =(
