Abstract
I present a proof of the quantum probability rule from decisiontheoretic assumptions, in the context of the Everett interpretation. The basic ideas behind the proof are those presented in Deutsch's recent proof of the probability rule, but the proof is simpler and proceeds from weaker decisiontheoretic assumptions. This makes it easier to discuss the conceptual ideas involved in the proof, and to show that they are defensible.
