Very briefly, the Copenhagen interpretation assumes two processes influencing the wavefunction, namely, i) its unitary evolution according to the Schr ¨odinger equation, and ii) the process of measurement.
Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics: a critical survey
As it is well known, the Copenhagen interpretation postulates that every measurement induces a discontinuous break in the unitary time evolution of the state through the collapse of the total wave function, the nature of the collapse is not at all explained, and thus the definition of measurement remains unclear.
Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics: a critical survey
Consequently, the ”collapse postulate” is simply an expression of our peculiar knowledge of the world of quantum objects; this is the group of Copenhagen and neo-Copenhagen interpretations.
