hi all. Ive started a group dedicated to finding a sequel theory to quantum mechanics focusing on local hidden variables. now 1 year old, almost 3000 msgs already, 100 subscribers. several graduate students, one practicing QM physicist working in superconductors etc., hope to see you there. will be posting a compendium of links shortly. esp seeking people who can pull off the mathematics. extremely active & high traffic right now. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/qm2/ we're not so into philosophical discussions such as on MWI, looking more for focus on the mathematics & experiment that could prove aspects of reality not previously accepted or understood. for example, is there a bell-like test of MWI that could distinguish a MWI universe from a non MWI universe? I would consider that inquiry on charter.
