Measurement and Compensation

Unfortunately, I deleted much of the intro. I'll fix it later.

e-mail me if this is still here after September. Thanks!

In this episode, we talk about Aharonov and Rohrlich's Quantum Paradoxes, chapter 8: "Measurement and Compensation":

We're reading Quantum Paradoxes by Yakir Aharonov and Daniel Rohrlich. This is a technical book that is making an argument for a specific interpretation of quantum theory. The first half of the book uses paradoxes to explore the meaning of quantum theory and describe its mathematics, then after interpretations are discussed in the middle chapter, an interpretation of quantum mechanics is explored with paradoxes based on weak quantum measurements.
