The Nature of Physical Theory: A Study in Theory of Knowledge

By Victor F. Lenzen | Go to book overview
is possible to denote the characters of an atomic system in a given state by symbols, such that the symbols may be represented by matrices which exhibit the possible results of measurement. The elements of the matrix are the numbers which express the results of a measurement with a calculable probability. We may say that quantum mechanics initiates a symbolic conception of nature.
