- Asking for specific examples of claimed errors in the QM textbook by Ballentine.
This thread is to get more specifics and start discussion regarding two recent claims in other QM forum threads, in a separate thread to avoid clutter in other discussions:
Ballentine lacks a clear statement of collapse or state reduction. He misrepresents the Copenhagen interpretation, and suggests that the Copenhagen interpretation is in conflict with experiment (Chapter 9). Ballentine's lack of collapse makes him give the wrong result in conflict with experimental outcomes on the "watched pot" experiment.
@atyy, can you give specific quotes and references (chapter/page) in Ballentine that these quotes are talking about?I think Ballentine is plain wrong on fundamentals
