    I was scanning through my old quantum mechanics lecture notes trying to find some information on where the probability associated with a measurement came from.

    The notes were pretty basic and said that it was Max Born who came up with the interpretation.

    I've been trying to find a source that explains how he came up with the interpretation, and how he knew that the product between the wave function and its conjugate gave the probability for a given measurement.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can find a reliable account of this discovery on the internet? I currently do not have access to a library.

    Many thanks in advance.

    One photon is detected at point 2.34566544332445453335 3.54355666668949392222574

    Is that there random information or non-random information?

    Born pondered that question, and found an answer. That's how it might have happened..
