A problem with an instructive description of measurement process for sufficiently separated entangled quantum systems is well known. More precise and crafty experiments together with new technological challenges raise questions about sufficiency of formal use of "black-box" Copenhagen paradigm without subtleties of transition between quantum and classical worlds. In this work are discussed applications both standard interpretation of quantum mechanics and "unconventional" models, like relative…

Information Nano-Technologies: Transition from Classical to Quantum
In this presentation are discussed some problems, relevant with application of information technologies in nano-scale systems and devices. Some methods already developed in quantum information


Decoherence, the measurement problem, and interpretations of quantum mechanics
Environment-induced decoherence and superselection have been a subject of intensive research over the past two decades, yet their implications for the foundational problems of quantum mechanics, most
Quantum Information Theory - an Invitation
Perhaps the most remarkable feat of quantum information processing was the realization of “quantum teleportation”, which once again has science fiction overtones.
On the Problem of Hidden Variables in Quantum Mechanics
The demonstrations of von Neumann and others, that quantum mechanics does not permit a hidden variable interpretation, are reconsidered. It is shown that their essential axioms are unreasonable. It
Affine-Detection Loophole in Quantum Data Processing
Here is considered a specific detection loophole, that is relevant not only to testing of quantum nonlocality, but also to some other applications of quantum computations and communications. It is
Does Quantum Nonlocality Exist? Bell's Theorem and the Many-Worlds Interpretation
Quantum nonlocality may be an artifact of the assumption that observers obey the laws of classical mechanics, while observed systems obey quantum mechanics. I show that, at least in the case of
Proposed Experiment to Test Local Hidden Variable Theories.
A theorem of Bell, proving that certain predictions of quantum mechanics are inconsistent with the entire family of local hidden-variable theories, is generalized so as to apply to realizable
Entanglement and Relativity
This paper surveys some of the questions that arise when we consider how entanglement and relativity are related via the notion of non-locality. We begin by reviewing the role of entangled states in
What Do These Correlations Know about Reality? Nonlocality and the Absurd
In honor of Daniel Greenberger's 65th birthday, I record for posterity two superb examples of his wit, offer a proof of an important theorem on quantum correlations that even those of us over 60 can
Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Correct?
In an earlier paper written in loving memory of Asher Peres, we gave a critical analysis of the celebrated 1935 paper in which Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen (EPR) challenged the completeness of
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.
