Description
Scope/Content: Among Hugh Everett's files were a number of handwritten documents related to the writing of his thesis. Some of them were early notes on ideas and material that ultimately appeared in the long thesis. This document, entitled "Relative wave functions" by Everett, was found loose among his papers. It may be the earliest document in which he works out the relative state formalism.
Scope/Content: This document was found in the basement of Mark Everett in 2007 by Mark Everett and Peter Byrne.
