String theoy

  1. Jul 13, 2008 #1
    quantum mechanics has many interpretations, though a lot of them don't disagree in the maths.

    i would like to know how each interpratation of quantum mechanics effects string theory, and viceversa: how do the string equations effect the individual interpratations of quantum mechanics. which is the prefered interpratation, among string theorits, of quatum mechanics for string theory.

    how would i search out this information?

    Typical string theorists do not much care about the interpretations of QM, i.e., it could said that most of them prefer the "shut up and calculate" interpretation.

    Due to your name, I suspect that you might like the Bohm interpretation. If so, you might find interesting that some results indicate an intimate relation between string theory and Bohmian interpretation:
