Just as in the definition of a function in mathematics, two *x* values can map to the same *y* value, but one *x* value cannot map to two *y* values; the future is unique in classical physics.

In quantum mechanics, the uniqueness is not of the measurement results, but of the set of probabilities of the results.

With respected to a known state, the future is unique in classical physics.

In quantum mechanics, the set of probabilities is encoded in the wave function.
