My understanding of wave-functions is close to zero, pardon me if the questions don't sound proper.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Do we have wave-function usage to describe a) Coherence and b) Entanglement?

2. Has a (mathematical/conceptual) way been developed to show the complementarity between both (a & b) via wave-functions?

3. is there some sort of inter-convertibility between two? (via wave-function treatment)

On a separate note:

Interestingly the wave function that emerges from a (single particle) double slit get stopped/blocked/terminated by the same types of obstacles that would effect a photon/light.

However entanglement is not effected.

In short: Coherence is effected by obstacles but entanglement is not and yet they are complementary.

Some of the other complementary "pairs" are position-momentum, time-energy, if we try to compare the pairs wonder if we can draw any insights/parallels
