Good paper(s) on Bell's theorem

  1. Jul 17, 2005 #1
    Hello all,

    When I read the original papers by EPR and Bell here
    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.



    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 ;-)

    Some other good papers on Bell's theorem

    Quantum mechanics, local realistic theories, and Lorentz-invariant realistic theories
    Hardy L
    PHYS REV LETT 68: (20) 2981-2984 MAY 18 1992

    "The mystery of the quantum cakes," P.G. Kwiat and L. Hardy, Am. J. Phys. 68, 33 (2000).

    "Hidden Variables and the Two Theorems of John Bell", N. David Mermin, Rev. Mod. Phys. 65, 803–815 (1993)

    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

    "Bell's inequality and 'ghost-like action-at-a-distance' in quantum mechanics", R D Mattuck 1982 Eur. J. Phys. 3 113-118

    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...
