I want to understand positive operator valued measures in QM, in particular why they are considered "observables". Anyone know a good place to start reading about this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know some functional analysis and some measure theory, but I haven't made it all the way to the spectral theorem.
