Wave Function Structure and Transactional Interpretation

  • Leonardo Chiatti

Abstract

The concept of “transaction,” introduced by Cramer in his realistic nonlocal interpretation of quantum mechanics (QM), is herein reformulated in the language of the Feynman graphs technique.

Key words

nonlocal realism transactional interpretation Feynman graphs
