Forgetting about spin and polarity for the moment, do individual identical particles of the same type (electrons, photons, etc.) really have their own(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); individualwave functions (Gaussian packets)? The mathematical definition of probability (relative frequency, etc.) has meaning only at theensemblelevel. Obviously, there is something that I do not understand, but how can one assign a wave function to an individual particle, a sample space ofone! As always, thanks in advance.
