Suggested readings, #21

Here are some interesting articles I’ve come across recently, for your consideration:

Quantum Darwinism may (or may not) be the solution to the problem of bridging the gap between quantum and classical physics. One thing for sure, though, contra this article, it has nothing to do with Darwinism. (Quanta Magazine)
