Shut up and calculate

I would not promote overly technical lecture notes, especially not about things covered in many books. But the interpretation of quantum mechanics in general and decoherence in particular - a subject that belongs both to physics as well as advanced philosophy - is usually not given a sufficient amount of space in the textbooks, and some people may be interested in Lecture23.pdf.

snail feedback (2) :

Dear Lubos,

If you really believe in "shut up and calculate" see HERE.

This is a calculation. It works. However the whole thing is still treated as crackpot.

Hey Professor: "Shut up and see this calculation!"

Professor: "All calculations are crackpot unless they come from string theory!"

Best wishes,

Nigel
