Abstract

Laplacian prediction in Newtonian mechanics, which requires the simultaneous measurement of 6N quantities for N particles, fails in quantum mechanics. We analyze single measurement prediction, which uses measurement of one present quantity to predict any one measurement at a prescribed future time, and which works in Newtonian and quantum mechanics.
