Forty years after the advent of quantum mechanics the problem of hidden variables, that is, the possibility of imbedding quantum theory into a classical theory, remains a controversial and obscure subject. Whereas to most physicists the possibility of a classical reinterpretation of quantum mechanics remains remote and perhaps irrelevant to current problems, a minority have kept the issue alive throughout this period. (See Freistadt [5] for a review of the problem and a comprehensive… 
On local-hidden-variable no-go theorems
The strongest attack against quantum mechanics came in 1935 in the form of a paper by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen. It was argued that the theory of quantum mechanics could not be called a complete
The Impossible Causality: The No Hidden Variables Theorem of John von Neumann
The debate over the question whether quantum mechanics should be considered as a complete account of microphenomena has a long and deeply involved history, a turning point in which has been certainly

On Modern Approaches to the Einsteinian View of Quantum States
Quantum mechanics notoriously faces the measurement problem, the problem that if read thoroughly, it implies the nonexistence of definite outcomes in measurement procedures. A plausible reaction to
Hidden Variables Theories (HVT)
The attentive reader of this book certainly noted that we introduced the quantum theory (QT) through its formal language (the rules of the game, section 2.1) and then we discussed some possible
ec 2 00 0 On possible extensions of quantum mechanics
We propose to generalize the probability axiom of quantum mechanics to self-adjoint positive operators of trace one. Furthermore, we discuss the Cartesian and polar decomposition of arbitrary normal
On the completeness of quantum theory
TLDR
This is an essay on the interpretation of quantum theory that explores the program of hidden variables as a way of completing the theory and the impact of recent work on ‘locality’ by Bell and Wigner is assessed.
Hidden variables and Bell's theorem in quantum mechanics
In the present paper we give a precise definition of a hidden-variable theory for quantum mechanics, whereby we adopt the weakest possible definition of a hidden-variable theory, which is compatible
Entanglement and the quantum-classical transition
The ubiquitous theory of quantum mechanics has sparked many controversial debates about possible interpretations and its place in fundamental physical theory. Perhaps most sustained of all the
Embedding Quantum Mechanics into a Broader Noncontextual Theory
TLDR
A new informal presentation of the extended semantic realism (ESR) model is supplied which embodies the formalism of QM into a broader mathematical formalism and reinterprets quantum probabilities as conditional on detection rather than absolute and justifies the assumptions introduced in the ESR model and proves its objectivity.
