What Retrocausal Explanations Look Like

Ken Wharton Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” While it is generally known that retrocausal models can provide an account of Bell-inequality violations in terms of spacetime-local beables, new models can now explicitly show how this comes about. By analyzing a simple local-beable model that precisely recovers the quantum joint probabilities for measurements on… Read more →
