Aula Dottorato
Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics

In this set of lectures we consider the different types of interpretations that have been considered for physical theories in general, and sketch out a variety of interpretations of quantum mechanics and their problems, including “textbook” quantum mechanics, issues of local causality and signal locality, Copenhagen quantum mechanics, operationalist quantum mechanics, some issues with hidden variable theories in general, Bohm-deBroglie quantum mechanics, consistent histories quantum mechanics, many worlds quantum mechanics, Qbism, and perhaps a few more (or a few less!) as time permits.
