Unformatted text preview: time t and then measure the position of the quantum particle for example by a photographic plate. After a large number of particles have been measure, the image corresponds to the probability distribution at time t. The time averaged probability distribution: If the position is measured at random times after the preparation of the equivalent states, the interferences between different eigenstates of the Schr dinger equation wash out . dx t x 2  ) , (  = = ) ( ) , ( n t i n n n E e x A t x = = = * * 2  ) , (  m n t i m n m n m E n E e A A t x = = 2 2 2  ) (     ) , (  n n n t x A t x...
