One Investigates inequalities for the probabilities and mathematical expectations which follow from the postulates of the local quantum theory. It turns out that the relation between the quantum and the classical correlation matrices is expressed] in terms of Grothendieck's known constant. It is also shown that the extremal quantum correlations characterize the Clifford algebra (i.e., canonical anticommutative relations). 

A histories perspective on characterizing quantum nonlocality Dowker

We introduce a framework for studying non-locality and contextuality inspired by the path integral formulation of quantum theory. We prove that the existence of a strongly positive joint quantum

Quantum Bell inequalities from Information Causality - tight for Macroscopic Locality

This work presents a family of inequalities, which approximate the set of quantum correlations in Bell scenarios where the number of settings or outcomes can be arbitrary, and derives these inequalities from the principle of Information Causality, and thus does not assume the formalism of quantum mechanics.

From Quantum Discord and Quantum Entanglement to Local Hidden Variable Models

We revisit the quantum discord, quantum entanglement and local hidden variable models in quantum mechanics, and present a kind of understanding of quantum states from the view of correlations given

Bounds on quantum nonlocality

This thesis phrase the problem of determining the quantum value of a Bell expression in the framework of computational complexity, and presents contributions exploring efficiently computable bounds (based on the spectral norm of some matrices) to the quantumvalue of a particular class of Bell inequalities: the linear games.

On the Significance of the Quantum Mechanical Covariance Matrix

This work shows that the extent of binary correlations in a general class of nonlocal theories can be characterized by the existence of a certain covariance matrix, and suggests that the Tsallis entropy with parameter q=1/2 is a natural operational measure of non-classicality.

Locality and classicality: role of entropic inequalities

The concept of classicality as the nonviolation of these classical inequalities by quantum states of several multiqubit systems is introduced and compared with the non Violation of Bell inequalities, that is, locality.

Geometry of the quantum set on no-signaling faces

Since Bell's theorem we know that quantum mechanics is incompatible with local hidden variable models, the phenomenon known as quantum nonlocality. However, in spite of steady progress over years,

Geometry of the set of quantum correlations

It is well known that correlations predicted by quantum mechanics cannot be explained by any classical (local-realistic) theory. The relative strength of quantum and classical correlations is usually

Bounds on the Distance Between a Unital Quantum Channel and the Convex Hull of Unitary Channels

This work provides two lower bounds on the distance between a given unital quantum channel and the convex hull of unitary channels by employing techniques from quantum information and operator algebras, respectively and shows how to apply them to construct some explicit counterexamples to AQBC.

Towards Grothendieck constants and LHV models in quantum mechanics

We adopt a continuous model to estimate the Grothendieck constants. An analytical formula to compute the lower bounds of Grothendieck constants has been explicitly derived for arbitrary orders, which



Quantum generalizations of Bell's inequality

Even though quantum correlations violate Bell's inequality, they satisfy weaker inequalities of a similar type. Some particular inequalities of this kind are proved here. The more general case of

Bell's inequalities and experimental verification of quantum correlations at macroscopic distances

In recent years the fulfillment of the inequalities established by Bell has been tested in different laboratories in the world. These inequalities make it possible to establish which of the

Bell's theorem. Experimental tests and implications

Bell's theorem represents a significant advance in understanding the conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics. The theorem shows that essentially all local theories of natural phenomena that are

Constructive generalization of Bell’s inequalities

SummaryA process to construct all generalizations of Bell’s inequalities in a given experimental situation is presented. In view of the completeness thus obtained, we address a criticism to a very
