2014 Synthese  
Theory conflict (b) Causal Decision Theory and the EPR statistics conflict.  ...  The paper argues that on three out of eight possible hypotheses about the EPR experiment we can construct novel and realistic decision problems on which (a) Causal Decision Theory and Evidential Decision  ...  Decision Theory conflict (b) Causal Decision Theory and the statistics for the EPR experiment conflict.  ...

Do the EPR correlations pose a problem for causal decision theory?

Adam Koberinski, Lucas Dunlap, William L. Harper
2017 Synthese  
We argue that Causal Decision Theory (CDT) is no worse off than Evidential Decision Theory (EDT) in handling entanglement, regardless of one's preferred interpretation of quantum mechanics.  ...  We highlight the fact that a Causal Decision Theorist should take all lawlike correlations into account, including potentially acausal entanglement correlations.  ...  This research was supported by a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral CGS Award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (Adam Koberinski).  ...

Spooky predictions at a distance: reality, complementarity and contextuality in quantum theory

Arkady Plotnitsky
2019 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
One contribution of 16 to a theme issue 'Contextuality and probability in quantum mechanics and beyond'. Subject Areas: quantum physics  ...  Mauro D'Ariano, Ehtibar Dzhafarov, Gregg Jaeger and Andrei Khrennikov for most productive discussions concerning the subjects considered here.  ...  Technically, this requirement only restricts (classical) causality by a relativistic antecedence postulate, and relativity theory, special or general, is a classical causal and indeed deterministic theory  ...

Realism or Locality: Which Should We Abandon? [article]

Raymond Y. Chiao, John C. Garrison
1998 arXiv   pre-print
Two common responses to these violations are: (i) the rejection of realism and the retention of locality, and (ii) the rejection of locality and the retention of realism.  ...  , and thus superluminal correlations in coincidence detection.  ...  The second is an affirmation of relativistic causality, as embodied in special relativity and the standard notions of causality, and hence of the locality principle.  ...

Non-local common cause explanations for EPR

Matthias Egg, Michael Esfeld
2014 European Journal for Philosophy of Science  
The paper argues that a causal explanation of the correlated outcomes of EPR-type experiments is desirable and possible.  ...  It shows how Bohmian mechanics and the GRW mass density theory offer such an explanation in terms of a non-local common cause.  ...  Acknowledgments Parts of this paper were presented at the PhiloSTEM-5 Workshop (Fort Wayne IN, March 2013) and the Conference on Causality and Experimentation in the Sciences (Paris, July 2013).  ...

Learning from the Bell-Inequalities: Causality, Locality and Realism

Wim TYTGAT
1994 Philosophica  
Does this mean that local causality is excluded in EPR -correlations? Our answer is no.  ...  Though (QR) fails, 1 will show that the Bell-inequality does not exclude a local causal explanation of EPR-correlations.  ...

The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Argument and the Bell Inequalities [article]

Laszlo E. Szabo
2007 arXiv   pre-print
It has motivated a wide range of research from the most fundamental quantum mechanical experiments through foundations of probability theory to the theory of stochastic causality as well as the metaphysics  ...  In 1935 Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) published an important paper in which they claimed that the whole formalism of quantum mechanics together with what they called "Reality Criterion" imply that  ...  Still we have a clear causal explanation of the correlation between the behaviors of the key and the register.  ...

"Without in Any Way Disturbing the System": Illuminating the Issue of Quantum Nonlocality [article]

Arkady Plotnitsky
2020 arXiv   pre-print
He proposed to differentiate quantum and classical phenomena and entanglement not by their respective nonlocality and locality, as is common, but by the discreteness of quantum phenomena vs. the continuity  ...  I suggest that the following features of quantum phenomena and quantum mechanics, distinguishing them from classical phenomena and classical physics--(1) the irreducible role of measuring instruments in  ...  Bohm's version of the EPR experiment can and has been performed, confirming the existence of quantum correlations, which can, thus, be ascertained experimentally, apart from QM or any quantum theory.  ...

Introduction to the special issue "Causation, probability, and truth—the philosophy of Clark Glymour"

Alexander Gebharter, Gerhard Schurz
2016 Synthese  
He picks up a suggestion made by Chris Meek and Clark to apply the causal Bayes net formalism to problems in causal decision theory.  ...  (vii) Choose variables such that the resulting causal graph can account for correlations and does not feature causal relations for which there is no empirical evidence or interventionist interpretation  ...

Comment on "The Free Will Theorem"

2007 Foundations of physics  
On the other hand, relativistic GRW-type theories have already been presented, in my recent paper [quant-ph/0406094] and by Dowker and Henson [J. Statist. Phys. 115: 1327 (2004), quant-ph/0209051].  ...  In a recent paper [quant-ph/0604079], Conway and Kochen claim to have established that theories of the GRW type, i.e., of spontaneous wave function collapse, cannot be made relativistic.  ...  I thank Angelo Bassi (LMU München), Detlef Dürr (LMU München), GianCarlo Ghirardi (Università di Trieste and ICTP), Shelly Goldstein (Rutgers University), Tim Maudlin (Rutgers University), and Nino Zanghì  ...

Ghostly action at a distance: A non-technical explanation of the Bell inequality

Mark G. Alford
2016 American Journal of Physics  
We discuss the implications, emphasizing the relationship between EPR and the Principle of Relativity, the distinction between causal influences and signals, and the tension between EPR and determinism  ...  Using the inequality, we show how the results of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) experiments violate the principle of strong locality, also known as local causality.  ...  Acknowledgments I thank Joseph Berkowitz, Jeffrey Bub, Carl Craver, Tim Maudlin, Travis Norsen, Kasey Wagoner, Howard Wiseman, and three anonymous referees for helpful comments.  ...
