This answer may be slightly removed from your question but may help you understand some of the background discussion. Classical physics has a good partnership between its formal mathematical language and it's informal interpretive language since we have our intuition of everyday objects. In quantum mechanics we lose the intuition aspect and hence have no ...
Decay is fairly well understood. You can model the components of the nucleus as being trapped in a well then find the rate at which the probability current leaks out. A realist QM interpretation would then say that the wave really does leak out. Of course the wave is in configuration space so it isn't a wave like an electromagnetic wave. A specific ...
Unless you are a proponent of there being loopholes in the various test of Bell's Inequality1 then local hidden variable are ruled out as the way any quantum mechanics works. 1 Which some non-crank people are, though as I understand it the wiggle room is getting pretty constrained.
