The many-worlds interpretation and the Born rule


I will describe my version of the many-worlds interpretation. I will explain how one can see our three-dimensional world, in spite of the fact that the basic ontology is the wave function in 3N dimensions. I will explain our experience of probability, in spite of the fact that the theory is deterministic and we have no ignorance about relevant wave function ontology in the measurement-type situations. The main novel element in the talk will be my understanding that explanation of empirically observed Born rule requires additional postulate beyond description of the unitary evolution of the wave function of the Universe.
