How is the QM prediction derived for Bell's tests?

  1. Jun 24, 2012 #1
    Question 1: how is the QM prediction (i.e. cosine curve, shown below) derived for Bell's tests? in layman' termss

    Question 2: while Malus's law, some physicists say, is not related to this cosine curve.
    Is there an indirect/lengthy way to connect the two?
