When two quantum objects interact, when does this interaction destroy their superposition and when does this interaction causes them to be entangled and allow the superposition to remain.
You can speak about collapse when you consider model that has something to say about single particle events. And this is domain of interpretations.When two quantum objects interact, when does this interaction destroy their superposition and when does this interaction causes them to be entangled and allow the superposition to remain.
Extending a bit on bhobba's analogy with numbers.2. Superposition of what? All quantum object's are in superposition all the time. Its like real numbers. 6= 3+3 so 6 is a supposition of 3 and 3. 6 = 4 + 2 so 6 is a superposition of 4 and 2.
