Hi!

So my degree is in computer science, I really don't have much physics beyond the high school level. But I recent watched this talk, from a computer scientist from Google:

He had big questions about Quantum mechanics, so he talked to some guys at Cal-Tech, and put together the above talk, with his own interpretation of QM which, as a CS guy myself, I really enjoyed.

But at 34:00 minutes in to that video, he makes a remarkable assertion: He says measurement is a continuum: The amount that a probability density function is collapsed happens along a continuum. This is counter intuitive from what I've previously read about QM, which is that for an individual particle, the probability function is collapsed or it isn't. So I'm thinking the math he points to says that probability really is a discrete rational number, not a real number, as he intreprets it to be.

Or maybe am I wrong. So my question is: it possible toobserve a single particle in the two slit experiment, so its probability density function is somewhere in between the interference pattern and the normal distribution of a particle going through one slit???partially

I appreciate the patience and answers of any physicists here.

PEace!
