Coherent States and the Measurement Problem [chapter]

Lajos Diósi
1997 New Developments on Fundamental Problems in Quantum Physics  
The convenience of coherent state representation is discussed from the viewpoint of what is in a broad sense called the measurement problem in quantum mechanics. Standard quantum theory in coherent state representation is intrinsically related to a number of earlier concepts conciliating quantum and classical processes. From a natural statistical interpretation, free of collapses or measurements, the usual von Neumann-Lüders collapse as well as its quantum state diffusion interpretation follow.
