A gedanken gadget is described, based on an idea of Greenberger, Horne, and Zeilinger, that provides a more powerful demonstration of quantum nonlocality than Bell’s analysis of the Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen experiment. 
A hidden-variables versus quantum mechanics experiment
In the light of the Bell-Kochen-Specker theorem, we examine a feasible experimental test in order to discriminate between non-contextual hidden-variables and some probabilistic predictions of quantum
Quantum mysteries revisited again
This paper describes a device, consisting of a central source and two widely separated detectors with six switch settings each, that provides a simple gedanken demonstration of the nonclassical
Device-independent tomography of multipartite quantum states
A method to self-test multipartite quantum states is constructed and shows that it is possible to characterize quantum states based only on observed statistics and without knowing any detail of the
Quantum Correlations Conundrum: An Automata-Theoretic Approach
We develop an automatic-theoretic analysis of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen conundrum on the basis of two simple devices introduced by Mermin [10, 11].
A Local Realistic Theory for the Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger Experiment
As a counterexample to conventional belief, a realistic theory, which is both local and reproduces all the probabilistic predictions of quantum theory, is constructed for the
Experiments with Entangled Photons : Bell Inequalities, Non-local Games and Bound Entanglement
Quantum mechanics is undoubtedly a weird field of science, which violates many deep conceptual tenets of classical physics, requiring reconsideration of the concepts on which classical physics is b
Topos logic in measurement-based quantum computation
TLDR
It is shown that, in a class of MBQC, classical universality requires non-classical logic, which is ‘consumed’ during the course of the computation, thereby pinpointing another potential quantum computational resource.
Three-particle Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen correlations
It has been argued by Mermin that agedanken decay of a three-particle system gives a more powerful demonstration of quantum nonlocality than Bell's analysis. It is shown that this claim is premature.
An Impossible Necklace
TLDR
A game which a quantum team can win against any classical team is proposed, based on a Zeno-type proof of Bell’s inequality, which might lead a person who does not know about quantum mechanics to believe in the existence of impossible necklaces.
Non-classical logic of classically universal measurement-based quantum computation
TLDR
It is shown that in a class of MBQC, classical universality requires non-classical logic, which is “consumed” during the course of the computation, therefore pinpointing another potential quantum computational resource.
