The Quasiclassical Realms of This Quantum Universe

Foundations of Physics 41 (6):982-1006 (2011)

Abstract
The most striking observable feature of our indeterministic quantum universe is the wide range of time, place, and scale on which the deterministic laws of classical physics hold to an excellent approximation. This essay describes how this domain of classical predictability of every day experience emerges from a quantum theory of the universe’s state and dynamics
