Quantum Fluctuations and Entanglement as Illustrated by Young’s Double Slit Experiment

Figure 1, In quantum physics, a quantum fluctuation is the temporary random change in the amount of energy in any point in space. This is a simulation of those fluctuations in a very tiny space. Source: Wikipedia


In my opinion, quantum fluctuations and entanglement are the least understood elements of quantum mechanics. By examining what is happening in the double slit experiment, we can see more clearly how they work. The equations describing the interactions don’t give one any feeling for what is happening. The…
