What is the most accepted interpretation of quantum mechanics?

The most widely accepted interpretation of quantum mechanics seems to be the Copenhagen one.

What are the interpretations of quantum mechanics?


Interpretation Year published Deterministic?
de Broglie– Bohm theory 1927– 1952 Yes
Quantum logic 1936 Agnostic
Time- symmetric theories 1955 Yes
Many-worlds interpretation 1957 Yes

Is Copenhagen interpretation wrong?

Although most physicists consider Einstein’s criticism technically unfounded, we show that the Copenhagen interpretation is actually incorrect, since Born’s probability explanation of the wave function is incorrect due to a false assumption on “continuous probabilities” in modern probability theory.

Did Einstein agree with the Copenhagen interpretation?

Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and others had worked on this in Copenhagen, and this led to it being known as the Copenhagen interpretation. However, Albert Einstein didn’t agree with either Born’s original interpretation or its refined version. He set out to find flaws in it.

What did Einstein think of quantum mechanics?

Albert Einstein famously said that quantum mechanics should allow two objects to affect each other’s behaviour instantly across vast distances, something he dubbed “spooky action at a distance”1. Decades after his death, experiments confirmed this.

Was Einstein or Bohr right?

Bohr seemingly triumphed over Einstein by arguing that the Einstein’s own general theory of relativity saves the consistency of quantum mechanics. We revisit this thought experiment from a modern point of view and find that neither Einstein nor Bohr was right.

What is the main disagreement between Einstein and Bohr?

Whereas Bohr proposed that entities (such as electrons) had only probabilities if they weren’t observed, Einstein argued that they had independent reality, prompting his famous claim that “God does not play dice”.

Does quantum mechanics disprove relativity?

Quantum mechanics is incompatible with general relativity because in quantum field theory, forces act locally through the exchange of well-defined quanta.

Did Einstein agree with Bohr?

Bohr fought back against the existence of the quantum of light (photon) by writing the BKS theory in 1924. However, Einstein was right and Bohr proved to be wrong about light quanta. Although Bohr and Einstein disagreed, they were great friends all their lives and enjoyed using each other as a foil.
