Philosophy enters the optics laboratory: Bell's theorem and its first experimental tests (1965–1982)

Olival Freire
2006 Studies in history and philosophy of modern physics  
It focuses on the period between 1965, when Bell published what now we call Bell's theorem, and 1982, when Aspect published the results of his experiments.  ...  I argue that what was considered good physics after Aspect's experiments was once considered by many a philosophical matter instead of a scientific one, and that the path from philosophy to physics required  ...  I consulted the John Francis Clauser Personal Papers due to kindness of Joan Bromberg, who provided me copies of them.  ...

Böhm theorem and Böhm trees for the Λμ-calculus

Alexis Saurin
2012 Theoretical Computer Science  
Though, in 2001, David and Py proved [2] that Böhm's theorem, which is a fundamental result of the untyped λ-calculus, cannot be lifted to Parigot's calculus.  ...  The aim of this section is to give an introduction to Böhm's result in the λ-calculus, emphasize its consequences and significance and develop a discussion about Böhm theorems beyond the scope of the λ-calculus  ...  Acknowledgements The author wishes to thank Pierre-Louis Curien, Dale Miller, Simona Ronchi della Rocca and Hugo Herbelin for their advice and guidance as well as the anonymous reviewers for their relevant  ...

From the No-Signaling Theorem to Veiled Non-locality

Subhash Kak
2013 NeuroQuantology  
According to the no-signaling theorem, the nonlocal collapse of the wavefunction of an entangled particle by the measurement on its twin particle at a remote location cannot be used to send useful information  ...  In practical terms, decoherence and noise compel us to view the wavefunction as representing knowledge of potential outcomes rather than the reality.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported in part by the National Science Foundation grant CNS-1117068.  ...

An Introduction to Quantum Entanglement: a Geometric Approach [article]

Karol Zyczkowski, Ingemar Bengtsson
2006 arXiv   pre-print
We present a concise introduction to quantum entanglement. Concentrating on bipartite systems we review the separability criteria and measures of entanglement.  ...  We hope also that it will provide a solid foundation for a new, emerging field of science-the theory of quantum information processing.  ...  See John Bell's (1987) [23] book for a sympathetic review of Bohm's arguments.  ...

Do we really understand quantum mechanics? Strange correlations, paradoxes, and theorems

F. Laloë
2001 American Journal of Physics  
Another general point that is emphasized is the necessity for the theory to predict the emergence of a single result in a single realization of an experiment.  ...  In another section the GHZ argument, the Hardy impossibilities, as well as the BKS theorem are introduced in simple terms.  ...  Needless to say, the fatalist attitude in science is even more subject to the difficulties of orthodox quantum mechanics concerning the impossibility to develop a theory without observers, etc..  ...

2019 arXiv   pre-print
We provide an introduction to the theory of quantum measurements that is centered on the pivotal role played by John von Neumann's model.  ...  This introduction is accessible to students and researchers from outside the field of foundations of quantum mechanics and presented within a historical context.  ...  both the orthodoxy and some attempts to break with it.  ...

Quantum Mechanics is About Quantum Information

Jeffrey Bub
2005 Foundations of physics  
The notion of quantum information is to be understood as a new physical primitive -- just as, following Einstein's special theory of relativity, a field is no longer regarded as the physical manifestation  ...  I argue that quantum mechanics is fundamentally a theory about the representation and manipulation of information, not a theory about the mechanics of nonclassical waves or particles.  ...  Acknowledgements The ideas in this paper originated during a research leave supported by a University of Maryland Sabbatical Leave Fellowship and a General Research Board Fellowship in 2001-2002.  ...

A Semi-Harmonic Frequency Pattern Organizes Local and Non-Local States by Quantum Entanglement in both EPR-Studies and Life Systems

Hans J. H. Geesink, Dirk K. F. Meijer
2018 Journal of Modern Physics  
In many biological studies, windowing, both with regard to frequency and amplitude domains, has been found and non-coherent modulations of signals have also an influence on biological properties [7].  ...  This implies that the same discrete coherent frequency pattern of EM quantum waves that determine local and non-local states is also applicable to biological order and that quantum entanglement is a prerequisite  ...  History of Experimental EPR Realizations EPR and Bell's theorem have motivated researchers to improve the theory of quantum mechanics.  ...

Explaining the Unobserved—Why Quantum Mechanics Ain't Only About Information

Amit Hagar, Meir Hemmo
2006 Foundations of physics  
According to Bub (2004, 2005) the philosophical significance of the theorem is that quantum theory should be regarded as a "principle" theory about (quantum) information rather than a "constructive" theory  ...  A remarkable theorem by Clifton, Bub and Halvorson (2003)(CBH) characterizes quantum theory in terms of information--theoretic principles.  ...  Introduction Quantum information theory has by now become to a large extent a new orthodoxy in the foundations of quantum mechanics.  ...
