Lessons of Bell's Theorem: Nonlocality, yes; Action at a distance, not necessarily.

Wayne C. Myrvold Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” Fifty years after the publication of Bell's theorem, there remains some controversy regarding what the theorem is telling us about quantum mechanics, and what the experimental violations of Bell inequalities are telling us about the world. This chapter represents my best attempt to be clear... Read more →

Protective measurements and the PBR theorem

Guy Hetzroni and Daniel Rohrlich Forthcoming in Protective Measurement and Quantum Reality: Towards a New Understanding of Quantum Mechanics (CUP, 2015) Protective measurements illustrate how Yakir Aharonov's fundamental insights into quantum theory yield new experimental paradigms that allow us to test quantum mechanics in ways that were not possible before. As for quantum theory itself, protective measurements demonstrate that a quantum... Read more →

Bell's theorem without inequalities: on the inception and scope of the GHZ theorem

Olival Freire Jr. and Osvaldo Pessoa Jr. Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” Since its inception, fifty years ago, Bell’s theorem has had a long history not only of experimental tests but also of theoretical developments. Studying pairs of correlated quantum-mechanical particles separated in space, in a composite “entangled” state, Bell (1964) showed that the... Read more →
