    MODAL INTERPRETATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS The term modal interpretation is ambiguous. It is a proper name that refers to a number of particular interpretations of quantum mechanics. And it is a term that singles out a class of conceptually similar interpretations, which includes proposals that are not generally referred to as modal ones. The distinguishing feature of ‘modal’ interpretations of quantum mechanics is their abandonment of the orthodox eigenstate–eigenvalue rule, which say We use cookies to enhance your experience on our continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Modal interpretations have the ambition to construe quantum mechanics as an objective, man-independent description of physical reality. Their second leading idea is probabilism: quantum mechanics does not completely fix physical reality but yields probabilities. In working out these ideas an important motif is to stay. In , Bas C. van Fraassen defined the modal interpretation of quantum mechanics as the consideration of it as ``a pure theory of the possible, with testable, empirical implications for what.

But at that time it was also really the only interpretation of quantum mechanics (even though there were some differences between its adherents.

According to the modal interpretation, the standard mathematical framework of quantum mechanics specifies the physical magnitudes of a system, which have definite values. Probabilities are assigned to the possible values that these magnitudes may adopt. The interpretation is thus concerned with physical properties rather than with measurement results: it is a realistic interpretation.

In this modal-Hamiltonian interpretation, the Hamiltonian of the quantum system plays a decisive role in the property-ascription rule that selects the definite-valued observables whose possible values become show that this interpretation is effective for solving the.

According to the modal-Hamiltonian interpretation, the Hamiltonian of the quantum system plays a decisive role in the definition of systems and subsystems, and in the rule that selects the This book begins by introducing the main interpretative postulates and by proving their Galilean invariance.

The world of quantum theory is not deterministic; however, the quantum theory of an isolated system describes its state as evolving can these two points be reconciled.

The modal interpretation (of which a number of variants have been developed) answers this as follows. An observable may have a value even if the system is not in the corresponding eigenstate of that. In this book, Pieter Vermaas details the results of this work. He provides both an accessible survey and a systematic reference work about how to understand quantum mechanics using a modal interpretation.

In this case we propose that the actual- valued observables are the Casimir operators of the Poincar\'e group and of the group U(1) of the internal symmetry of the theory.
