The theory of quantum mechanics lies at the basis of our modern understanding of how microscopic particles such as electrons and atomic nuclei behave. Despite this fact, controversy on what it actually says about the physical world has accompanied the further development of the theory and its various off-springs up to today. Perhaps the main

In this respect, I understand mathematical physics as both a complement and a competitor to theoretical physics.
