Quantum mechanics is a mathematical formalism that models the dynamics of physical
objects. It deals with the elementary constituents of matter (atoms, subatomic and elementary
particles) and of radiation. It is very accurate in predicting observable physical phenomena, but has
many puzzling properties. The foundations of quantum mechanics are a domain in which physics
and philosophy concur in attempting to find a fundamental physical theory that explains the puzzling
features of quantum mechanics, while remaining consistent with its mathematical formalism. Several
theories have been proposed for different interpretations of quantum mechanics. However, there is
no consensus regarding any of these theories.
