No, it's a single result for a single state of the apparatus. So, in the case described in my OP to this thread, ##|1> |U>## is one result (corresponding to the "up" state of the measured system) and ##|2> |D>## is another result (corresponding to the "down" state of the measured system). Both results occur because both terms appear in the final state of the total system (measured system + apparatus). "Outcome" is just another term for "result" as I have just defined it.since a world is not ''the universe'', and ''outcome'' is never defined, it doesn't really say anything about outcomes. The latter should be what comes actually out, which is a single result.
