Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.

The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After an introduction, we review the models proposed. A flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced...
