Modal Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity: A Reconsideration
Two of the main interpretative problems in quantum mechanics are the so-called measurement problem and the question of the compatibility of quantum mechanics with relativity theory. Modal

The Road to Maxwell's Demon
Quantum Decoherence and the Approach to Equilibrium
We discuss a recent proposal by Albert (1994a; 1994b; 2000, ch. 7) to recover thermodynamics on a purely dynamical basis, using the quantum theory of the collapse of the wave function by Ghirardi,
