developed by Paul Dirac in 1927 that explains the apparent paradox of
wave/particle duality, by identifying a wave with the superposition of an
indefinite number of particles. For example, if a wave is then interpreted as
showing the probability of the location of a particle, then a
"collapse" of the wave through measurement yields a particle
sometimes found "here" and sometimes "there."
