A example of amplitude in Relativistic Quantum Mechanics or specifically in QFT is the amplitude of a field configuration on a space-like hyper-surface of space-time to "lead" to another field configuration on another space-like hyper-surface of space-time. In the path-integral picture one simply integrates over all possible field configurations on the interior, giving each a weight in the normal way. Now if one wants to generalize this to finite closed boundaries, we would get an amplitude for each field configuration on a finite closed boundary of space-time. but how would we interpret this? This question relates to interpretations of quantum mechanics, has anyone investigated this line ?
