Abstract: In this talk, I’ll review and expand on several problems faced by various forms of Everettian quantum theory, known more familiarly as many-worlds interpretations. I’ll also introduce and discuss some new criticisms, one of which potentially applies to many-worlds interpretations in general, and another that’s relevant to certain minimalist versions of Everettian quantum theory.
