Abstract

Quantum suicide experiment is an interesting and brave idea to test the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. However, there have been debates on whether the idea is valid. In this paper, I present a new analysis of the quantum suicide experiment. It is argued that the experiment is not different from usual quantum experiments, and it fails to provide a feasible way to test the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
