Mathematically they are set up so the wave extends instantly to infinity in all directions, right? What would break if you limited the "propagation speed" to c, so if a particle is created at a point in space it would have 0 probability of being detected outside a sphere expanding at c away from that point?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
