Why would classical correlation in Bell's experiment be a linear function of angle?

Sorry if it's a newbie question, but I have trouble understanding the following part in the Wikipedia's explanation for the Bell's theorem: With the measurements oriented at intermediate angles ...

Defining entanglement in subspaces of tensor product

I have asked the question in math.stackexchange, but perhaps it should be more relevant here. Hence I am re-posting it with necessary reediting. Let $\mathcal{H}=\mathbb{C}^n$ be a Hilbert space. A ...

Local measurement of entangled particle pairs and interpretation of state

This just started to bother me after reading yet another entangled particle question, so I hate to ask one myself, but... If we have two entangled particles and take a measurement of one, we know, ...

Local EPR-experiments with photons in vacuum?

The principle of non-locality states "that an object is influenced directly only by its immediate surroundings." (Wikipedia) When two entangled particles are measured in an EPR experiment, we ...

Can experiment distinguish the basis in which a singlet state is represented?

Let $\left(|\uparrow\rangle,|\downarrow\rangle\right)$ and $\left(|\nearrow\rangle,|\swarrow\rangle\right)$ be two bases of the $2$-dimensional Hilbert space $H$. Can an experiment distinguish ...

Can quantum entanglement be a proof of a 4th spatial dimension?

What I know about quantum entanglement is almost nothing. What I know can be resumed to: "two particles created together have a correlated behaviour no matter the distance between them". This is ...
