the Multiverse Interpretation

chinmay7 writes "There is an excellent selection of articles (and
quite a few related scientific papers) in [1]a special edition of Nature
magazine on interpretations of the multiverse theory. 'Fifty years ago
this month Hugh Everett III published his paper proposing a
"relative-state formulation of quantum mechanics" — the idea subsequently
described as the 'many worlds' or 'multiverse' interpretation. Its impact
on science and culture continues. In celebration, a science fiction
special edition of Nature on 5 July 2007 explores the symbiosis of
science and sf, as exemplified by Everett's hypothesis, its birth,
evolution, champions and opponents, in biology, physics, literature and
beyond.'
