If one measures a system for momentum, it will collapse into a delta in momentum space. (right?) How would that look in position space, and how would the function evolve in time, if no subsequent measurements are made, in both position and momentum space? A mathematical answer would be appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
