Bell's inequality is a no-go theorem contrasting crucial correlations of physical observables in QM to those of the world as described by classical mechanics, essentially local hidden variables theories serving as a viable "explanation" of QM: QM inevitably violates these inequalities, as observed. Further use for the CHSH inequality generalization.

Further use for the CHSH inequality generalization (by J Clauser, M Horne, A Shimony and R Holt).
