    • Abstract


      We review the recent investigations on the improved formulation of uncertainty relations which employ the information-theoretic entropy rather than variance as a measure of uncertainty. We show that this formulation also brings out clearly the relation between the overall uncertainty and the quantum mechanical interference due to measurements.
