artifact description
The Everett interpretation faces no challenge more pertinent than the problem of how to square manifest determinism with the probability familiar from the conventional quantum algorithm. In this paper I review recent attempts at solving this problem at the conceptual and quantitative (Born) level. I conclude that momentous progress has been made, but certain aspects (subjective uncertainty, decision-theoretic axioms) still require further development.
