The many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics (Princeton series in physics). If you read this book and are not then able to waffle more convincingly about the movie Source Code, I will personally give you your money back. 0691081263 (ISBN13: 9780691081267). No warranty is made that you will get your money back in this quantum reality, merely that there is at least one world where the stated event occurs.

The many-worlds interpretation (MWI) is an interpretation of quantum mechanics that asserts that the universal wavefunction is objectively real, and that there is no wavefunction collapse. This implies that all possible outcomes of quantum measurements are physically realized in some "world" or universe. In contrast to some other interpretations, such as the Copenhagen interpretation, the evolution of reality as a whole in MWI is rigidly deterministic.

The many worlds interpretation was mute on that point. Again, the branching universe concept was DeWitt’s, not Everett’s, and I’ll return to this issue later

To be sure, Everett did not describe his interpretation in terms of branching worlds. The many worlds interpretation was mute on that point. Again, the branching universe concept was DeWitt’s, not Everett’s, and I’ll return to this issue later. In a nutshell, this was what I gleaned from DeWitt’s Physics Today article. In the intervening years, hundreds of papers have analyzed and expanded upon Everett’s thesis.

A novel interpretation of quantum mechanics, first proposed in brief form by Hugh Everett in 1957, forms the nucleus around which this book has developed. In his interpretation, Dr. Everett denies the existence of a separate classical realm and asserts the propriety of considering a state vector for the whole universe. Because this state vector never collapses, reality as a whole is rigorously deterministic. This reality, which is described jointly by the dynamical variables and the state vector, is not the reality customarily perceived; rather, it is a reality composed of many worlds. By virtue of the temporal development of the dynamical variables, the state vector decomposes naturally into orthogonal vectors, reflecting a continual splitting of the universe into a multitude of mutually unobservable but equally real worlds, in each of which every good measurement has yielded a definite result, and in most of which the familiar statistical quantum laws hold.

The volume contains Dr. Everett's short paper from 1957, "'Relative State' Formulation of Quantum Mechanics," and a far longer exposition of his interpretation, entitled "The Theory of the Universal Wave Function," never before published. In addition, other papers by Wheeler, DeWitt, Graham, and Cooper and Van Vechten provide further discussion of the same theme. Together, they constitute virtually the entire world output of scholarly commentary on the Everett interpretation.

When I was studying physics, some of my fellow students and I were so perplexed by the strangeness of quantum mechanics that we went to our professors for help. But our professors basically said it's the best theory ever, just compute and don't ask questions. About 10 years before that, however, a student of John Wheeler at Princeton HAD asked some questions and came up with an answer. Unfortunately, it was so wild that no one believed it and the theory fell into a Black Hole for many years. Now, however, it just might be the favored theory among the greatest physicists.

The problem that Hugh Everett saw was that when no one is making a measurement, the world hums happily along according to the Schrodinger Wave Equation, which, for example, tells you the probability of finding an electron at any given place. But when you make a measurement, the wave function collapses, and the probability goes to 1 that the electron is where you measured it. So the world seems to be dual: the Wave Equation and the Collapse of the Wave Equation. Everett saw a way to make the World One always, never Two, at the cost of creating quite a few Worlds each of which would also be One. The way this works is that if quantum mechanics tells us the spin of the electron has half a chance of being Up and half of being Down, and then when we measure it and find it is pointing Up, a new Universe is instantly created in which the spin is Down. Everything in each Universe follows the Schrodinger Wave Equation always. Everett of course died a bitter man with his great idea forgotten by all, but a later student, Bryce DeWitt, stumbled across the idea years later and helped to bring it forward again. This book is a record of that experience, with Everett's main papers and appreciations of the papers by several physicists. It's a great intellectual adventure, and you may find yourself captivated by the terrific simplicity of Everett's Great Idea.

Very very poor print quality, like a scan at 150dpi then printed on a dot-matrix printer.

The Many Worlds Interpretation presented a new way of thinking about the universe. Encapsulating the most recent trends in physics it established the basis by which modern physicists could relate and understand the nature of reality.
This book represented the two principal schools of physics which existed at the time. One was the traditional school which dealt with a world of logical order (comparitively speaking). The other school consisted of the outsiders, new thinkers in the classical representation. They postulated an infinitiely growing universe of multiple universes, each universe bursting into existence based on decisions and actions in another. This concept was so radical that even today, many noted physicists dispute its credibility. I, on the other hand, find it impossible not to believe. To me, it is the only paradigm which works and it explains my own experiences and discoveries with great efficiency.
This book is one of those I continue to refer to, which paralleled and confirmed my own discoveries and which began a long, fascinating journey into the realm of theoretical physics. This book gets me going! Perry Jones
