A preliminary document on my fresh new approach to QM

I have uploaded the outline document I had promised as an attachment to a blog post at iMechanica; see here [^]. I will copy-paste the text of that post below:


Hello, World!

Here is a document that jots down, in a brief, point-wise manner, the elements of my new approach to understanding quantum mechanics.

Please note that the writing is very much at a preliminary stage. It is very much a work in progress. However, it does jot down many essential ideas.

I am uploading the document at iMechanica just to have an externally verifiable time-stamp to it. Further versions will also be posted at this thread.

Comments are welcome. However, I may not be able to respond all of them immediately, because (i) I wish to immediately switch over to my studies of Data Science (ii) discussions on QM, especially on its foundations, tend to get meandering very fast.

Best,

–Ajit


It was only yesterday that I had said that preparing this document would take longer, may be a week or so. But soon later, I discarded the idea of revising the existing document (18 pages), and instead tried re-writing a separate summary for it completely afresh. Turns out that starting afresh all over again was a very good idea. Yesterday, I was at about 2 pages, and today, I finished jotting down all the ideas, at least in essence, right within 8 pages (+ 1 page of the reference section).


A song I like:

[It happens to be one of the songs which I first heard roughly around the same time that I got my own bicycle, and the times when I first came across the quantum mechanical riddles—which was during my X–XII standard days. I had liked it immediately—I mean the song. I don’t know why it doesn’t appear frequently enough on people’s lists of their favorites, but it has a very, very fresh feel to it. It anyway is a song of the teenage, of all those naive expectations and unspoiled optimism. Usha Mangeshkar, with her deft, light touch, somehow manages to bring that sense of life, that sense of freshness and confidence, fully alive in this song. The music and the lyrics are neat too… All in all, an absolutely wonderful song. … Perhaps also equally important, it is of great nostalgic value to me, too.

It used to be not easily available. So, let me give you the link to listening and buying it at Gaana.com; it’s song # 9 on this page [^] ]
