Project Title:
No-collapse Quantum Mechanics
Supervisor:CHEN Tian Wen
Co-Supervisor:-
Quota:2
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.
Course type: UROP1100  
Applicant's Roles:Reading articles, giving presentations on articles, working on problems assigned by supervisor, writing reports. Requires A range grade in PHYS3036/PHYS3037. 
Applicant's Learning Objectives:Understanding what No-Collapse Quantum Mechanics is, Understanding what preferred-basis problem is, Understanding what Born-rule problem is, Understanding the Gleason’s theorem, Investigating how preferred-basis emerges, Investigating the origin of Born rule 
Complexity of the project:Challenging
