To start with the double slit experiment gives interference even when the beam is composed by one photon at a time. The spot on the screen a photon/particle the statistical accumulation the interference seen as expected classically too. The joint comes because the photon as a quantum mechanical entity has a wavefunction that is the solutions of Maxwell's ...

I am no expert on statistics, but as far as I understand it, the Bayesian statistical approach requires the formulation of a set of priors, which are then updated as new data comes in. But in the pure formalism of QM, the probability interpretation imposed by the Born rule does not update any prior, since classical mechanics does not know any kind of the ...

Well, there's three different types of answers I can think of, with regards to what you asked. One case we can have is that there's some systems that are so complicated, that if you change their initial states only slightly, the system changes drastically. This is called chaos. James Gleick's book is a good one for laypeople. Any graduate level mechanics ...
