Is the Devil in h?

  title={Is the Devil in h?},
  author={Andrei Khrennikov},
This note is a part of my effort to rid quantum mechanics (QM) nonlocality. Quantum nonlocality is a two faced Janus: one face is a genuine quantum mechanical nonlocality (defined by the Lüders’ projection postulate). Another face is the nonlocality of the hidden variables model that was invented by Bell. This paper is devoted the deconstruction of the latter. The main casualty of Bell’s model is that it straightforwardly contradicts Heisenberg’s uncertainty and Bohr’s complementarity… Expand

About a century ago, in the spirit of ancient atomism, the quantum of light was renamed the photon to suggest that it is the fundamental element of everything. Since the photon carries energy in itsExpand

Quantum Nonlocality: Myth and Reality
Quantum mechanics is, like classical mechanics, a local theory: one system cannot influence another system with which it does not interact. Claims to the contrary based on quantum violations of BellExpand
Making Sense of Bell’s Theorem and Quantum Nonlocality
Bell’s theorem has fascinated physicists and philosophers since his 1964 paper, which was written in response to the 1935 paper of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen. Bell’s theorem and its manyExpand
Quantum postulate vs. quantum nonlocality: on the role of the Planck constant in Bell’s argument
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 theExpand
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
Bell argument: Locality or realism? Time to make the choice
We discuss a possibility of resolution nonobjectivity-nonlocality dilemma in the light of experimental tests of the Bell inequality for two entangled photons and Bell-like inequality for a singleExpand

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 recentlyExpand
The role of von Neumann and Lüders postulates in the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen considerations: Comparing measurements with degenerate and nondegenerate spectra
We show that the projection postulate plays a crucial role in the discussion on the so-called quantum nonlocality, in particular, in the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen argument. We stress that theExpand
Quantum epistemology from subquantum ontology: quantum mechanics from theory of classical random fields
The scientific methodology based on two descriptive levels, ontic (reality as it is ) and epistemic (observational), is briefly presented. Following Schrodinger, we point to the possible gap betweenExpand
Get Rid of Nonlocality from Quantum Physics
It is demonstrated that the tests on violation of the Bell type inequalities are simply statistical tests of local incompatibility of observables, in fact, these are tests onviolation of the Bohr complementarity principle. Expand
Contextual Approach to Quantum Formalism
The aim of this book is to show that the probabilistic formalisms of classical statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics can be unified on the basis of a general contextual probabilistic model. ByExpand
