Abstract

Weak quantum measurement (WM) is unique in measuring noncommuting operators and other peculiar, otherwise-undetectable phenomena predicted by the two-state-vector-formalism (TSVF). The aim of this article is threefold: (i) introducing the foundations of WM and TSVF, (ii) studying temporal peculiarities predicted by TSVF and manifested by WM, and (iii) presenting applications of WM to single particles.
