    Event by event method is a simulation approach which is not based on the knowledge of the Schrödinger equation. This approach uses the classical wave theory and particle concept: we use particles, not waves. The data is obtained by counting the events that were detected by the detector, just as in real experiments. The particle is considered as a messenger (carries a message) that is processed by the deterministic learning machine. We demonstrated that the event-based deterministic learning machine simulation can produce the same interference patterns as those obtained in the experiment. The event-by-event method reproduces the results of quantum theory of the Mach-Zehnder interferometer, Mach-Zehnder interferometer with absorber, three beam interference, delayed choice and two-photon interference experiments.
