Many seemingly paradoxical effects are known in the predictions for outcomes of measurements made on pre-and post-selected quantum systems. A class of such effects, which we call " logical pre-and post-selection paradoxes " , bear a striking resemblance to proofs of the Bell-Kochen-Specker theorem, which suggests that they demonstrate the contextuality of quantum mechanics. Despite the apparent similarity, we show that such effects can occur in noncontextual hidden variable theories, provided… CONTINUE READING
