For those interested in this stuff, what is your opinion of this less well-known Vaxjo interpretation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We discuss the problem of interpretation of the wave function...The main distinguishing feature of the present Vaxjo interpretation is the combination of realism on the subquantum level with nonobjectivity of quantum observables (i.e., impossibility to assign their values before measurements). Hence, realism is destroyed by detectors transforming continuous subquantum reality into discrete events, clicks of detectors. The Vaxjo interpretation-2012 is fundamentally contextual in the sense that the value of an observable depends on measurement context. This is contextuality in Bohr’s sense. It is more general than Bell’s contextuality based on joint measurements of compatible observables.Vaxjo Interpretation of Wave Function: 2012

"Einsteins Dream”-Quantum Mechanics as Theory of Classical Random Fields

http://arxiv.org/pdf/1204.5172.pdf

We show that quantum probabilities can be derived from statistical mechanics of classical fields. We consider Brownian motion in the space of fields and show that such a random field interacting with threshold type detectors produces clicks at random moments of time. And the corresponding probability distribution can be approximately described by the formalism of quantum mechanics. Hence, probabilities in quantum mechanics and classical statistical mechanics differ not so much as it is typically claimed. The temporal structure of the "prequantum random field" (which is the L2-valued Wiener process) plays the crucial role. Moments of detector’s clicks are mathematically described as hitting times which are actively used in classical theory of stochastic processes. Born’s rule appears as an approximate rule. In principle, the difference between the “precise detection probability rule” derived in this paper and the conventional Born’s rule can be tested experimentally. In our model the presence of the random gain in detectors plays a crucial role. We also stress the role of the detection threshold. It is not merely a technicality, but the fundamental element of the model.Born’s rule from statistical mechanics of classical fields: from hitting times to quantum probabilities
