Is it not an i missing in the second term?
Then it is just a case of taking what is real or imaginary in your physics feelings.
Any factor of i or any phase like that can be absorbed in the definition of the second term. What is important is that the probabilities add up to one. That is why one of them is proportional to cosine and the other one to sine.
Yes, of course, but I think you have missed my point! 🙂 [Only in an imaginary world you’d have too much time and little to do! At least for a physicist!]
For me, f(t) is less than epsilon where epsilon is less than 10^-12.
Yet my joke does not work in Hilbert spaces… 😦
The reason f(t) stays close to zero is due to the quantum Zeno effect. I recommend not making any rapid repetitive measurements on “physics” when you have too many other things to do =)
