A Pointer Theory Explanation of Weak Value Persistence Occurring in the Quantum Three Box Experimental Data

Title variants
Languages of publication
A concise exact pointer theory for von Neumann projector measurements of pre- and post-selected quantum systems has previously been used to formalize the notion of weak value persistence and apply it to explain pointer position data collected from a dynamical quantum non-locality detection experiment. This paper applies this exact pointer theory to provide an operational explanation of weak value persistence observed in the data obtained from a recent quantum box experiment.
