Different from other physical theories, Quantum Mechanics (QM) is not based on physical principles, i.e., physical statements testable by experiments, but on abstract mathematics such as operators on Hilbert spaces. This is one of the cause to prevent the intuitive understanding of QM, and has long been considered as one of the most important problems of the foundations of QM.
