Tracking down the locality assumption in a CHSH inequality derivation

CHSH inequality requires both locality and realism. I will equate here realism with counterfactual definiteness. Now counterfactual definiteness tells us that given two different measurements on the ...

What are the Implications of Bell's Theorem?

Consider the following game show: two friends Tom and Jerry (X and Y) are selected from an audience to compete for a grand prize, a brand new Ferrari. The game description: The two contestants ...

Bell polytopes with nontrivial symmetries

Take $N$ parties, each of which receives an input $s_i \in {1, \dots, m_i}$ and produces an output $r_i \in {1, \dots, v_i}$, possibly in a nondeterministic manner. We are interested in joint ...

Is there a cheap way I can do a Bell inequality experiment?

My work is almost completely theoretical/computational. But I'd really like to do a Bell inequality experiment just so I can personally see this (the best way to learn something is hands-on, right?) ...

Do Bell inequality violations appear instantly when the source is turned on, or do they increase over time?

This experimental Question is a result of reading a particular article on Bell violations. I addressed the e-mail below to the corresponding authors —because who knows, they might reply— but it is not ...

Does it matter in which order settings will be changed during CHSH-inequality check experiment?

Does it matter in which order detector settings will be changed when checking CHSH inequality? For example, i'm trying to build a simple (and very approximate) computer simulation of experiment. Now ...

What characterizations are available for two-photon Bell state light sources?

It is often technologically important to know how photon statistics change over time when a light source is turned on. A light source that comes to full intensity/visibility in a nanosecond after it ...

Would Einstein have accepted the presumptions that lead to the Bell inequality?

To check the correlation between Hidden Variable Theory and Quantum Mechanics, Bell calculated the expectation value $<\sigma_{e}(\vec a,\vec V) \sigma_{p}(\vec b,\vec V)> = \int d^n V ...
