How is interference of electrons (double slit experiment) explained in Heisenberg's Matrix Mechanics?

    $\begingroup$ Per handwaving I would say that technically you would have to make the transition from matrices to differential operators, first... so you might as well go with the Schroedinger equation right away, because that's where you will end up one way or another. See the part about "Further results" in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_mechanics. It's an interesting question if discretized versions of interference actually converge properly. $\endgroup$ – CuriousOne Mar 4 '16 at 9:20
