The entangled quantum states play a key role in quantum information. The association of the quantum state vector with each individual physical system in an attributive way is a source of many paradoxes and inconsistencies. The paradoxes are avoided if the purely statistical interpretation of the quantum-state vector is adopted. According to the statistical interpretation, the quantum theory does not provide any deterministic prediction for any individual experimental result obtained for a free… 

EPR Paradox, Locality and Completeness of Quantum Theory

The quantum theory (QT) and new stochastic approaches have no deterministic prediction for a single measurement or for a single time‐series of events observed for a trapped ion, electron or any other

Unconditional Quantum Correlations do not Violate Bell’s Inequality

In this paper I demonstrate that the quantum correlations of polarization (or spin) observables used in Bell’s argument against local realism have to be interpreted as conditional quantum

Causality and local determinism versus quantum nonlocality

The entanglement and the violation of Bell and CHSH inequalities in spin polarization correlation experiments (SPCE) is considered to be one of the biggest mysteries of Nature and is called quantum

Entanglement and quantum nonlocality demystified

Quantum nonlocality is presented often as the most remarkable and inexplicable phenomenon known to modern science. It has been known already for a long time that the probabilistic models used to

Is the Moon There If Nobody Looks: Bell Inequalities and Physical Reality

Bell-CHSH inequalities are trivial algebraic properties satisfied by each line of an Nx4 spreadsheet containing ±1 entries, thus it is surprising that their violation in some experiments allows us to

Is Einsteinian no-signalling violated in Bell tests?

Abstract Relativistic invariance is a physical law verified in several domains of physics. The impossibility of faster than light influences is not questioned by quantum theory. In quantum

Classical probability model for Bell inequality

We show that by taking into account randomness of realization of experimental contexts it is possible to construct common Kolmogorov space for data collected for these contexts, although they can be

Is quantum theory predictably complete?

It was not proven that the time series of existing experimental data did not contain some stochastic fine structures that could have been averaged out by describing them in terms of the empirical probability distributions, and various statistical tests are advocated that could be used to search for such fine structures in the data.

A simple probabilistic model is constructed allowing the existence of strong correlations between outcomes of distant measurements to be explained in a locally causal way and why the introduction of setting-dependent parameters does not restrict experimenters' freedom of choice.

Can Einstein with Bohr Debate on Quantum Mechanics Be Closed

Three experimental groups succeeded recently to close, at the same time, locality and fair sampling loopholes and confirmed that realism understood as counterfactual definiteness may not be used to



On the Completeness of Quantum Mechanics

Quantum cryptography, quantum computer project, space-time quantization program and recent computer experiments reported by Accardi and his collaborators show the importance and actuality of the

The statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics

The Statistical Interpretation of quantum theory is formulated for the purpose of providing a sound interpretation using a minimum of assumptions. Several arguments are advanced in favor of

The quantum measurement process: an exactly solvable model

An exactly solvable model for a quantum measurement is discussed which is governed by hamiltonian quantum dynamics. The z‐component ŝz of a spin −12 is measured with an apparatus, which itself

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.

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

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.

Towards a Deeper Understanding of the Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen Problem

Most of the nearly innumerable attempts to provide for a sound understanding of the gedanken experiment of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) contain additional ideas, notions or features imposed on

A possible explanation for the probabilities of quantum mechanics

It is shown that a lack of knowledge about the measurements of a physical system gives rise to a nonclassical probability calculus for this physical system. It is also shown that the nonclassical

Statistical structure of quantum theory

The course presents some basic concepts and rigorous results of a new scientiflc discipline { quantum information theory. It starts with a thorough reconsideration of the mathematical foundations of

Local realism, contextualism and loopholes in Bell's experiments

It is currently widely accepted, as a result of Bell's theorem and related experiments, that quantum mechanics is inconsistent with local realism and there is the so called quantum non-locality. We
