A Chemical-Physical View of the Interpretation of Wavefunction

preprint
submitted on 08.09.2020 and posted on 11.09.2020 by Kourosh Ebrahimi
Here, based on different experimental setups and thought experiments it is shown that some of the predictions of the nonlocal probabilistic interpretation of wavefunction are not observed and that this interpretation does not account for the real-world physical and chemical interactions. Considering these interactions, classical and quantum mechanics are unified and a testable, local, and probabilistic interpretation of wavefunction is proposed in explaining the outcome of a double-slit experiment. This analysis suggests that there is no spooky action at a distance.
