A Philosopher Struggles to Understand Quantum Theory: Particle Creation and Wavepacket Reduction

In M. Ferrero & A. van der Merwe (eds.), Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics (1995)
Work on the central problems of the philosophy of science has led the author to attempt to create an intelligible version of quantum theory. The basic idea is that probabilistic transitions occur when new stationary or particle states arise as a result of inelastic collisions.
