Quantum Interpritation?

  1. Jun 29, 2007 #1
    Im reading Brian Greenes book The Fabric of The Cosmos, Im just past the part about Quantum physics and he just briefly talks about the fact that there are a bunch of interpritations for quantum physics. Does anyone have a link to a list explaining the difrent interpritations?

    The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has some useful pages on specific interpretations:

    Copenhagen interpretation:

    Bohmian mechanics:
    http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/qm-bohm/

    Everett's relative-state interpretation:
    http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/qm-everett/

    The many-worlds interpretation (a type of relative-state interpretation):
    http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/qm-manyworlds/

    The Stanford Encyclopedia doesn't have a page for the transactional interpretation, but here's one by its inventor:
