Number of pages: 42
Introduction to the theory of decoherence. Contents: 1. The phenomenon of decoherence: superpositions, superselection rules, decoherence by 'measurements'. 2. Observables as a derivable concept. 3. The measurement problem. 4. Density matrix, coarse graining, and 'events'.

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 ...
