No-collapse Quantum Mechanics
Project Description

The No-Collapse (Many-World) interpretation suffers from at least two problems, the preferred-basis issue and the probability issue (Origin of Born rule). In this project, we shall investigate how the preferred-basis is chosen and how one makes sense of probability in a model in which everything happens.
