From quantum miracles to many worlds

September 15, 2021 by | Uncategorized

Wednesday, 22 September, 2021 @ 530PM in 208 Argyros Forum Action at a distance is a miracle. Quantum phenomena such as interaction-free measurements, teleportation, Bell-type correlations apparently require such miracles. Accepting the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics avoids the necessity of action at a distance and thus removes paradoxes from quantum theory. Outside visitors to
