Experimentally, how well tested is Born's rule?
Extremely, afaik. I'm curious. Why are you asking this?dEdt said:Experimentally, how well tested is Born's rule?
Born's rule, also known as the Born probability rule, is a fundamental principle in quantum mechanics that relates the probability of observing a particular outcome when measuring a quantum system to the complex amplitude of the system's wavefunction.
In experiments, Born's rule is used to predict the probabilities of different outcomes when observing a quantum system. This allows scientists to make accurate predictions and interpretations of experimental data.
Born's rule has been extensively tested and has been found to be in excellent agreement with experimental data. It has been verified for a wide variety of quantum systems and is considered to be a well-established principle in quantum mechanics.
Although Born's rule has been extensively tested, there are some potential limitations to its applicability. For example, it does not apply to systems with a large number of particles or to systems in which the wavefunction is not well-defined.
There are some alternative theories to Born's rule, such as the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics. However, these alternative theories are not widely accepted and have not been supported by experimental evidence to the same extent as Born's rule.
