The concept of probability can help measure some of the possible outcomes of different experiments in the field of quantum mechanics. Those experiments include Thomas Young's double slit experiment, the Schrödinger equation, the wave function, and the Born Rule, which all make use of probability to predict the placement of certain subatomic particles including photons of light, in the experiments. In this project, the manner in which probability does this is explored in depth.


This poster was created based on work completed for FYS 146: Probability, Prediction, and Paradox; and presented as a part of the eighth annual CAFE Symposium on February 8, 2023.
