  1. Armond Duwell (2014). Thinking Carefully About Quantum Information. Metascience 23 (3):485-488.
    The development of quantum information theory over the last 20 years has produced a plethora of interesting new results and along with them a host of claims have been made by physicists and philosophers about how quantum information theory helps us understand the quantum world. When one examines such claims with any attention to detail, it is quite obvious that radically different and incompatible claims are being made about the quantum world. Christopher Timpson’s Quantum Information Theory and the Foundations of (...)

  5. Armond Duwell (2007). The Many-Worlds Interpretation and Quantum Computation. Philosophy of Science 74 (5):1007-1018.
    David Deutsch and others have suggested that the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics is the only interpretation capable of explaining the special efficiency quantum computers seem to enjoy over classical ones. I argue that this view is not tenable. Using a toy algorithm I show that the Many-Worlds Interpretation must crucially use the ontological status of the universal state vector to explain quantum computational efficiency, as opposed to the particular ontology of the MWI, that is, the computational histories of worlds.

  7. Armond Duwell (2001). Explaining Information Transfer in Quantum Teleportation. Proceedings of the Philosophy of Science Association 2001 (3):S288-.
    In this paper I introduce a new species of teleportation which I use to evaluate three explanations of information transfer in quantum teleportation. I will argue that two explanations fail to explain the "physical effect" of teleportation. I will also argue that that information transfer, understood as something more than simple qubit transfer, is not necessary for teleportation to occur.
