Time Symmetry and the Many-Worlds Interpretation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter reviews an attempt to solve the collapse problem in the framework of a timesymmetric quantum formalism. Although the proposal does not look very attractive, its concept - a world defined by two quantum states, one evolving forwards and one evolving backwards in time - is found to be useful in modifying the many-worlds picture of Everett's theory.
