Uncertainty Principle: is an expression for the determination of quantum mechanics that it is impossible to determine two complementary quantities, such as the location and momentum of an elementary particle, at the same time. The Uncertainty Principle applies to the micro-range and has no meaning for macroscopic objects. For example, the statement that the researcher's magnifying glass burns the object is not fundamentally wrong, but it is a false application of the Uncertainty Principle.

II 285
Uncertainty relation/Schrödinger/Genz: the uncertainty relation excludes deterministic laws.
GenzVsSchrödinger: that was not correct: the laws of quantum mechanics are just as deterministic as long as the system is not disturbed from outside.
