An Introduction to Many Worlds in Quantum Computation
by Clare Hewitt-Horsman
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 38
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 book aims to give students the best possible understanding of the physical implications of quantum mechanics by explaining how quantum systems evolve in time, and showing the close parallels between quantum and classical dynamics.

This book deals with the kinematics of diffusion processes. The dynamical equations are derived from a variational principle, and interference, the asymptotics of free motion, bound states, statistics, and spin are described in classical terms.
