Abstract Correlations for the Bell gedankenexperiment are constructed using probabilities given by quantum mechanics, and non-local information. They satisfy Bell's inequality and exhibit spatial non-stationarity in angle. Correlations for three successive local spin measurements on one particle are computed as well. These correlations also exhibit non-stationarity, and satisfy the Bell inequality. In both cases, the mistaken assumption that the underlying process is wide-sense-stationary in… 

The ultimate loophole in Bell’s theorem: The inequality is identically satisfied by data sets composed of ±1′s assuming merely that they exist

Abstract Bell’s stated assumptions in deriving his inequality were sufficient conditions. It is shown that a far simpler condition exists for derivation of the inequality: the mere existence of

The connection between Bell's inequalities based on probabilities and those based on correlations

Abstract Violation of Bell inequalities is widely regarded as a definitive test for non-locality. However, Bell correlational inequalities must always be satisfied by all jointly present,

Unseen facts due to the statistical derivation of the Bell inequality and their logical consequences

The Bell inequality is derived under the assumption of three physical data sets, random or deterministic. The data sets represent a laboratory realization of Bell’s three probability based variables.

Logical Difficulty from Combining Counterfactuals in the GHZ-Bell Theorems

In eliminating the fair sampling assumption, the Greenberger, Horne, Zeilinger (GHZ) theorem is believed to confirm Bell’s historic conclusion that local hidden variables are inconsistent with the

The Bell Inequality Is Satisfied by Quantum Correlations Computed Consistently with Quantum Non-Commutation

In constructing his theorem, Bell assumed that correlation functions among non-commuting variables are the same as those among commuting variables. However, in quantum mechanics, multiple data values



On Fine's Resolution of the EPR-Bell Problem

The aim of this paper is to provide an introduction to Fine's interpretation of quantum mechanics and to show how it can solve the EPR-Bell problem. In the real spin-correlation experiments the

A proposal for an experimental realization of Bohm s spin-2 particle version of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment is described, which will not only close the detector efficiency loophole, but in addition will permit enforcement of the locality condition.

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 additional

Proposed Experiment to Test Local Hidden Variable Theories.

A theorem of Bell, proving that certain predictions of quantum mechanics are inconsistent with the entire family of local hidden-variable theories, is generalized so as to apply to realizable

Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?

Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that one is led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete.

New high-intensity source of polarization-entangled photon pairs.

Type-II noncollinear phase matching in parametric down conversion produces true entanglement: No part of the wave function must be discarded, in contrast to previous schemes.

Discussion of Experimental Proof for the Paradox of Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky

A brief review of the physical significance of the paradox of Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky is given, and it is shown that it involves a kind of correlation of the properties of distant

Experimental Consequences of Objective Local Theories

A broad class of theories, called "objective local theories," is defined, motivation for considering these theories is given, and experimental consequences of the class are investigated. An extension
