Lately, I've been wondering that the sum rule from probability theory applies in all fields of study, expect for in quantum mechanics, where we need to apply the sum rule to probability amplitudes instead of to probabilities.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there any physical phenomenon that can explain this principle of quantum mechanics?
