On the interpretation of quantum mechanical weak values

Svensson, Bengt E Y LU (2014) In Physica Scripta T163.
Abstract
After a brief review of how quantum mechanical weak measurements plus post-selection give rise to the weak value concept, I criticize an interpretation of a weak value as any sort of straightforward, bona fide property of the system under investigation.
