An Introduction to Many Worlds in Quantum Computation

The interpretation of quantum mechanics is an area of increasing interest to many working physicists. This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific 'neo-Everettian' theory is introduced and its claim as the best available interpretation defended.

This paper is a review of our recent work on three problems of non-relativistic quantum mechanics: realist interpretation, quantum theory of classical properties and the problem of quantum measurement. A considerable progress has been achieved...

In resisting attempts to explain the unity of a whole in terms of a multiplicity of interacting parts, quantum mechanics calls for an explanatory concept that proceeds in the opposite direction: from unity to multiplicity ...

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.
