- TL;DR Summary
- Is the expectation of a quantum event a density in space/time?

I apologise for my very limited understanding of quantum physics: my background is in General Relativity. A wave function is said to represent the probability of a particle being at some point in space/time, and I take that to mean that the probability of a quantum event is a density on space/time. That implies (does it not?) that the rate of quantum events (other things being equal) is a density in local time. In particular, the rate of quantum events close to a black hole should be very low when expressed as a rate in (say) Schwarzschild coordinate time. The literature that I read seems to contradict that. Where am I going wrong?
