Comment on "Non-representative Quantum Mechanical Weak Values"

Lev Vaidman
  • Function : Author

Abstract

Svensson (Found Phys 45: 1645, 2015) argued that the concept of the weak value of an observable of a pre- and post-selected quantum system cannot be applied when the expectation value of the observable in the initial state vanishes. Svensson's argument is analyzed and shown to be inconsistent using several examples.
