The wavefunction, many “worlds”, and Fourier analysis…some light-hearted morning thoughts

Okay, I had a bit of a bee in my bonnet over this subject this morning (this isn’t the first time), and I thought I’d just get my thoughts out and into the digital universe…hopefully to trigger someone else thinking, and maybe to get someone talking to me about the subject, if they’re interested.  Here you go, wherever you are:

Here’s a link to Sean Carrol’s latest book Something Deeply Hidden

Here’s a link to Max Tegmark’s book Our Mathematical Universe

Here’s a link to David Deutsch’s book The Fabric of Reality

Here’s a link to David Deutsch’s book The Beginning of Infinity

  1. I loved the way you say that wavefunction is not like water waves, or electromagnetic waves but its a wave in Hilbert space, or complex space or infinite dimensional space… The mathematics of quantum mechanics we are taught in college is all the Copenhagen Interpretation where most students struggle to get past their exams instead of thinking about the hidden mysteries behind each of the concept they are reading. Infact I’m still struggling to understand these concepts. I would love to read Something deeply hidden but I’m kind of worn out reading books like this because they never explain anything. But anyway, it was great to hear your thoughts on quantum mechanics! Hope to hear more from you soon!

    1. Thank you for your kind words!

      I understand how you feel about such books, but I do think Sean Carroll does better than most in this regard. I’ve read the book directly, and I’ve also listened to the audio book (which he narrates himself, which is nice). It’s worth a read or a listen, in my opinion.
