A unified view on Hardyʼs paradox and the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt inequality

Bell?s inequality fundamentally changed our understanding of quantum mechanics. Bell?s insight that non-local correlations between quantum systems cannot be explained classically can be verified experimentally, and has numerous applications in modern quantum information. Today, the Clauser?Horne?Shimony?Holt (CHSH) inequality is probably the most well-known Bell inequality and it has given us a wealth of understanding in what differentiates the classical from the quantum world. Yet, there are… Expand

Nonlocal games and optimal steering at the boundary of the quantum set
The boundary between classical and quantum correlations is well characterized by linear constraints called Bell inequalities. It is much harder to characterize the boundary of the quantum set itselfExpand
Quantum Apices: Identifying Limits of Entanglement, Nonlocality, & Contextuality
This work develops analytic methods to quantitatively demarcate quantum reality from its subset of classical phenomenon, as well as from the superset of general probabilistic theories. RegardingExpand
Measurement dependence, limited detection and more: problems and applications of quantum nonlocality
The work in this thesis focuses on the subject of quantum nonlocality. The fact that the principle of locality is violated in nature is among the most counter-intuitive revelations of the pastExpand
Hardy’s Paradox as a Demonstration of Quantum Irrealism
Hardy’s paradox was originally presented as a demonstration, without inequalities, of the incompatibility between quantum mechanics and the hypothesis of local causality. Equipped with newlyExpand
Nonlocal Position Changes of a Photon Revealed by Quantum Routers
A Bell-like theorem applied to this experiment challenges any alternative interpretation that avoids disappearance-reappearance in favor of local hidden variables. Expand
The Inflation Technique for Causal Inference with Latent Variables
Abstract The problem of causal inference is to determine if a given probability distribution on observed variables is compatible with some causal structure. The difficult case is when the causalExpand


Hardy’s test versus the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt test of quantum nonlocality: Fundamental and practical aspects
We compare two different tests of quantum nonlocality, both in theoretical terms and with respect to a possible implementation in a mesoscopic circuit: Hardy's test [L. Hardy, Phys. Rev. Lett. 68,Expand
Quantum non-locality—it ainʼt necessarily so...
Bellʼs theorem is 50 years old. There still remains a controversy about its implications. Much of this controversy has its roots in confusion regarding the premises from which the theorem can beExpand
Violation of Bell's inequality in Josephson phase qubits
This experiment uses a pair of Josephson phase qubits acting as spin-1/2 particles, and shows that the qubits can be entangled and measured so as to violate the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt (CHSH) version of the Bell inequality. Expand
On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox
Abstract Central to the EPR paradox is a ‘thought experiment’ in which two spins are initially coupled to a state with S  = 0 and are then separated to a large distance, at which they can beExpand
On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox
THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additionalExpand
The Uncertainty Principle Determines the Nonlocality of Quantum Mechanics
Two central concepts of quantum mechanics, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and a subtle form of nonlocality that Einstein famously called “spooky action at a distance,” are shown to be linked. Expand
Experimental violation of a Bell's inequality with efficient detection
Here, correlations in the classical properties of massive entangled particles (9Be+ ions): these correlations violate a form of Bell's inequality, and the high detection efficiency of the apparatus eliminates the so-called ‘detection’ loophole. Expand
Hardy's paradox and violation of a state-independent Bell inequality in time.
It is shown that Hardy's paradox is much stronger in time and the violation of a temporal Bell inequality independent of the quantum state, including for fully mixed states is demonstrated. Expand
Information causality as a physical principle
It is suggested that information causality—a generalization of the no-signalling condition—might be one of the foundational properties of nature and help to distinguish physical theories from non-physical ones. Expand
Experimental test of quantum nonlocality in three-photon Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger entanglement
Experimental confirmation of Bell's theorem is reported, using the recently developed method to observe three-photon entanglement, or ‘Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger’ (GHZ) states, and finds the results of the fourth experiment to be in agreement with the quantum prediction and in striking conflict with local realism.
