Everettian Rationality: defending Deutsch's approach to probability in the Everett interpretation

- D. Wallace
- Philosophy, Physics
- 10 March 2003

An analysis is made of Deutsch's recent claim to have derived the Born rule from decision-theoretic assumptions. It is argued that Deutsch's proof must be understood in the explicit context of the… Expand

TLDR

Empirical Consequences of Symmetries

- H. Greaves, D. Wallace
- Mathematics, Physics
- The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
- 18 November 2011

It is widely recognized that ‘global’ symmetries, such as the boost invariance of classical mechanics and special relativity, can give rise to direct empirical counterparts such as the Galileo-ship… Expand

In Defence of Naiveté: The Conceptual Status of Lagrangian Quantum Field Theory

- D. Wallace

TLDR

Everett and structure

- D. Wallace
- Physics
- 28 July 2001

I address the problem of indefiniteness in quantum mechanics: the problem that the theory, without changes to its formalism, seems to predict that macroscopic quantities have no definite values. The… Expand

Worlds in the Everett interpretation

- D. Wallace
- Philosophy, Physics
- 16 March 2001

This is a discussion of how we can understand the world-view given to us by the Everett interpretation of quantum mechanics, and in particular the role played by the concept of `world'. The view… Expand

Quantum Probability and Decision Theory, Revisited

- D. Wallace
- Mathematics, Physics
- 18 November 2002

An extended analysis is given of the program, originally suggested by Deutsch, of solving the probability problem in the Everett interpretation by means of decision theory. Deutsch's own proof is… Expand

Quantum Mechanics on Spacetime I: Spacetime State Realism

- D. Wallace, C. Timpson
- Philosophy, Physics
- The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
- 30 July 2009

What ontology does realism about the quantum state suggest? The main extant view in contemporary philosophy of physics is wave-function realism. We elaborate the sense in which wave-function realism… Expand
