# Get Rid of Nonlocality from Quantum Physics

@article{Khrennikov2019GetRO, title={Get Rid of Nonlocality from Quantum Physics}, author={Andrei Yu. Khrennikov}, journal={Entropy}, year={2019}, volume={21} }

This paper is aimed to dissociate nonlocality from quantum theory. We demonstrate that the tests on violation of the Bell type inequalities are simply statistical tests of local incompatibility of observables. In fact, these are tests on violation of the Bohr complementarity principle. Thus, the attempts to couple experimental violations of the Bell type inequalities with “quantum nonlocality” is really misleading. These violations are explained in the quantum theory as exhibitions of…

Quantum postulate vs. quantum nonlocality: on the role of the Planck constant in Bell’s argument

- 2021

We present a quantum mechanical (QM) analysis of Bell’s approach to quantum foundations based on his hidden-variable model. We claim and try to justify that the Bell model contradicts to the…

This paper is devoted to the deconstruction of Bell’s model: the existence of an indivisible quantum of action given by the Planck constant, which implies rejection of the quantum postulate.

This article aims to contribute to the ongoing task of clarifying the relationships between reality, probability, and nonlocality in quantum physics. It is in part stimulated by Khrennikov’s…

"Without in Any Way Disturbing the System": Illuminating the Issue of Quantum Nonlocality

- Physics

In several recent communications (Khrennikov 2019a, b, c, 2020a, b), A. Khrennikov argued for "eliminating the issue of quantum nonlocality" from the analysis of quantum entanglement and quantum…

Formalization of Bohr’s Contextuality Within the Theory of Open Quantum Systems

In quantum physics, the notion of contextuality has a variety of interpretations, which are typically associated with the names of their inventors, say, Bohr, Bell, Kochen, Specker, and recently…

Are Bell-tests only about local incompatibility?

- Physics

The view exists that Bell-tests would only be about local incompatibility of quantum observables and that quantum non-locality would be an unnecessary concept in physics. In this note, we emphasize…

Quantum Interference in Classical Physics & and its Impact on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics

It is claimed that classical mechanics (CM) in terms of its equivalent Koopman-von Neumann formulation (KvN) is indeed a ’real’ quantum theory since the formalism of quantum mechanics (FQM) does not,…

It is argued that quantum phenomena, including those exhibiting quantum correlations, and quantum mechanics may be best understood in quantum-informational terms, and that this understanding is implicit already in the work of some among the founding figures of quantum mechanics.

It is shown that for arbitrary dimension the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt inequality provides the Lagrangian dual of the characterization of joint measurability, which leads to a simple criterion for joint measURability beyond the known qubit case.
