You are implying there is some difficulty in calculating specific decoherence results yet the people who are performing experiments in decoherence have no such problem in calculating them with no reference at all to either of your interpretations or choosing between them... The math works just fine in our single world and produces predictable results...

But it produces probabilities. And the experiments confirm that the measured values are random with the distribution predicted. But each measurement only produces one of the probable values. So the question is how do you get from the probabilities, which is what QM+decoherence predicts, to actual realized unique values? Omnes just says what do you expect QM is a probabilistic theory. Everett says they all happen every time with different values and we 'happen' every time as observers with correlated experiences.

What do you say?
