# Making nonlocal reality compatible with relativity

@article{Nikoli2010MakingNR, title={Making nonlocal reality compatible with relativity}, author={Hrvoje Nikoli{\'c}}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2010} }

It is often argued that hypothetic nonlocal reality responsible for nonlocal quantum correlations between entangled particles cannot be consistent with relativity. I review the most frequent arguments of that sort, explain how they can all be circumvented, and present an explicit Bohmian model of nonlocal reality (compatible with quantum phenomena) that fully obeys the principle of relativistic covariance and does not involve a preferred Lorentz frame.

Hidden Variables with Nonlocal Time

- Physics

To relax the apparent tension between nonlocal hidden variables and relativity, we propose that the observable proper time is not the same quantity as the usual proper-time parameter appearing in…

If time is a local observable, then Hawking radiation is unitary

In the usual formulation of quantum theory, time is a global classical evolution parameter, not a local quantum observable. On the other hand, both canonical quantum gravity (which lacks fundamental…

We show that the Born's rule is incompatible with Lorentz symmetry of the Square Root Klein-Gordon equation (SRKG equation). It has been demonstrated that the Born rule must be modified in…
