We describe a simple experimental setting where joint measurements performed on a single (classical or quantum) entity can violate both the Bell-CHSH inequality and the marginal laws (also called no-signaling conditions). Once emitted by a source, the entity propagates within the space of Alice's and Bob's detection screens, with the measurements' outcomes corresponding to the entity being absorbed or not absorbed in a given time interval. The violation of the marginal laws results from the… Expand

Violation of CHSH inequality and marginal laws in mixed sequential measurements with order effects
An upper limit for the observed correlations is derived when Alice's and Bob's measurements are compatible, and Tsirelson's bound limits the quantum correlations in the Bell-CHSH inequality to $2\sqrt{2}$. Expand
The Violation of Bell Inequalities in the Macroworld
It is proved that if nonidentical events are consistently differentiated, Bell-type Pitowsky inequalities are no longer violated, even for Bohm's example of two entangled spin 1/2 quantum particles. Expand
Role of Particle Entanglement in the Violation of Bell Inequalities
This work demonstrates that to overcome the Bell bound, this correlation must be accompanied by the entanglement between the constituent particles and reveals a fundamental relation between the non-locality and the particleEntanglement. Expand
Is Einsteinian no-signalling violated in Bell tests?
Abstract Relativistic invariance is a physical law verified in several domains of physics. The impossibility of faster than light influences is not questioned by quantum theory. In quantumExpand
The extended Bloch representation of quantum mechanics and the hidden-measurement solution to the measurement problem
Abstract A generalized Bloch sphere, in which the states of a quantum entity of arbitrary dimension are geometrically represented, is investigated and further extended, to also incorporate theExpand
The extended Bloch representation of quantum mechanics: Explaining superposition, interference, and entanglement
An extended Bloch representation of quantum mechanics was recently derived to offer a possible (hidden-measurements) solution to the measurement problem. In this article we use this representation toExpand
Quantum entanglement in physical and cognitive systems: A conceptual analysis and a general representation
The phenomenon of entanglement in bipartite systems is provided, as it manifests in micro and macro physical systems, as well as in human cognitive processes, by observing that when genuine coincidence measurements are considered, the violation of the ‘marginal laws’ is to be expected. Expand
Quantum measurements as weighted symmetry breaking processes: the hidden measurement perspective
The purpose of the present note is twofold. Firstly, we highlight the similarities between the ontologies of Kastner's possibilist transactional interpretation (PTI) of quantum mechanics - anExpand
Entanglement in single-particle systems
We address some of the most commonly raised questions about entanglement, especially with regard to the so-called occupation number entanglement. To answer unambiguously whether entanglement canExpand
At What Time Does a Quantum Experiment Have a Result
This paper provides a general method for defining a generalized quantum observable (or POVM) that supplies properly normalized conditional probabilities for the time of occurrence (i.e., ofExpand
