**An Introduction to Many Worlds in Quantum Computation**

by Clare Hewitt-Horsman

**Publisher**: arXiv 2009**Number of pages**: 38

**Description**:

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.
