problem in quantum mechanics: Maudlin, T. (1995), "Three Measurement Problems", Topoi 14, 7-15..
A classic paper on the same topic is Wigner's "The Problem of Measurement" from 1963.
- Laloe asks in 2001 "Do we really understand quantum mechanics?"

were equivalent you better read this two pieces by Muller:

Mechanics - Part I and The
Equivalence Myth of Quantum Mechanics - Part II .
