How does LHV explain quantum entanglement swapping?

  1. Jun 8, 2012 #1
    how does/would LHV (local hidden variables) theory explain the phenomena of:

    1. quantum entanglement swapping (where Alice and Bob never meet, and Charlie/Victor is still able to entangle their photons)
    2. two-photon interference without the photons ever meeting at the same time-space/place

    It depends on what LHV model you have in mind:
