Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,

When I read the original papers by EPR and Bell here
http://www.drchinese.com/David/EPR_Bell_Aspect.htm
I didn't understand them.

But I found a paper that explains Bell's theorem quite good:

Daniel M. Greenberger, Michael A. Horne, Abner Shimony, Anton Zeilinger
"Bell's theorem without inequalities", American Journal of Physics Vol. 58 (12), December 1990.

So for all the ones who are interested in Bell's theorem, read the paper! :smile:
Especially the Appendix, where Bell's inquality is derived.

If you know of any other good papers on this topic, just post them here.


Cheers!

Edgardo


P.S. To find the paper, type in google American Journal of Physics and Browse "All Online Issues"
http://scitation.aip.org/dbt/dbt.jsp?KEY=AJPIAS [Broken]
Go to Volume 58, to December and search for the title.

I tried it but they asked for a username and password, or I could buy it for $18.50. If it were $1.50 I probably would have gone for it ;-)

I found further good papers:

"Ghost-like action-at-a-distance in quantum mechanics: an elementary introduction to the Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen paradox", R D Mattuck 1982 Eur. J. Phys. 3 107-112
http://www.iop.org/EJ/abstract/0143-0807/3/2/010

"Bell's inequality and 'ghost-like action-at-a-distance' in quantum mechanics", R D Mattuck 1982 Eur. J. Phys. 3 113-118
http://www.iop.org/EJ/abstract/0143-0807/3/2/011

Note: Your will be able to download those papers from your university's computer, since
your university has probably a subscription to those journals.

Although this is not his original, this one by Zeilinger covers much of the same ground as the one cited by OP:

Multi-photon Entanglement

And it doesn't cost 18.50...
