Abstract

We investigate the possibility that the amplitude of quantum wave can have a deeper physical meaning other than the probabilistic interpretation base on Born’s postulate. We find that the probabilistic nature of a quantum system can be explained if matter has fluctuations in space and time. The basic properties of a zero spin bosonic field (e.g., Schrödinger’s equation, Klein-Gordon equation, probability density, second quantization) are derived. In addition, the properties of this system with fluctuations in space and time can be applied to explain the wave packet collapse in quantum measurements.
