Ascribed to and Described by: Which is more Important?

  • Alberto Rimini


The theory of quantum measurement in the framework of the de Broglie-Bohm formulation of quantum mechanics is presented and discussed. It is shown that the de Broglie-Bohm theory allows a fully satisfactory description of quantum measurement. The importance of this feature of the theory is stressed.
