  • David Deutsch's 1985 algorithm to determine the preferred product structure and basis in the many worlds interpretation is examined. His heuristic argument for the conditions appearing in the algorithm is found wanting. The question of the existence and uniqueness of a final solution to his algorithm is discussed. The algorithm is shown to be inadequate to account for certain types of measurement which are, at least in principle, possible.
