Protective measurements offer an intriguing method for measuring the wave function of a single quantum system. With contributions from leading physicists and philosophers of physics-----including two of the original discoverers of this important method------ ‘Protective measurements and quantum reality’ edited by Shan Gao explores the concept of protective measurement, investigating its broad applications and deep implications.
