Consider the double-slit experiment using a low-intensity source of monochromatic photons: If the intensity is low enough, one can observe the photons, one at a time, slowly developing an interference pattern on a photographic plate.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The interference pattern, over time, resembles more and more the continuous probability density function associated with the wave function, i.e. it “converges” to the PDF.

I have just started reading about the different types of convergence in probability theory:

Convergence in Distribution

Convergence in Probability

Almost Sure Convergence

Etc.

Has anybody found QM literature researching the types of convergence that occur in QM random processes?

Thanks in advance.
