Duality of Nature

Basic Principles, Evidence and Examples
  • Tatjana Jevremovic

Newton’s and Schrödinger’s equations both describe the motion. Newton’s laws describe the motion of macroscopic objects and are the foundation of classical physics. Schrödinger’s equations describe the motion of quantum particles giving the solutions in a form of wave functions and probabilities. This chapter is all about the quantum particle–wave duality and the explanations on the quantum laws with examples and description, of experimental evidence.
