In QM we have the postulate of measure giving rise to the notion of wave function collapse throught measurement.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there an analog description of collapse in QFT (even an effective one) ? And what is then collapsing ? The field ? What would that mean ?

I'm interested for references on the subject.
