I would like to apologize if this is the wrong StackExchange site but I couldn't think of anything better.
I'm writing my thesis about random number generators. In a section about quantum random number generators I'm trying to explain on a high level why they are random and what guarantees their randomness. I was wondering if I could make the following statement:
Any physical effect that violates Bell-CHSH inequality is fundamentally quantum in nature. Because quantum effects are indeterministic their outcomes cannot be predicted and are great sources of randomness.
From what I understand, Bell-CHSH inequality can be used to prove that hidden local variables theory doesn't explain QM and QM is, in fact, not classic. However can I extend this logic to conclude that any kind of physical effect violating those inequalities is quantum/non-classic as well?
Ideally I'd love to get some citations I can quote even if I'm wrong. I majored in CS and proving this is probably way over me.
I can translate the whole part of my thesis should it be relevant.
EDIT: Added the local part of "hidden local variables" and changed my wording. Thanks @Wolphram jonny
If it helps anything then my train of thought was as follows:
- QM was proven to be not classic by Bell's inequality violations
- Quantum effects were proven to be random/unpredictable
- Someone thought it would be a good idea to create an RNG based on quantum effects
- ME: If some physical effect violates Bell's inequality we can conclude it's quantum in nature.
It looks like I'm missing a proof for 2. and 4.
