I read over a high-lever description of this theorem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kochen–Specker_theorem) and was wondering how reasonable the assumptions are. Specifically, is it reasonable to assume that the value of a sum of observables is the same as the sum of the values of the individual observables? I just noticed it's only required for commuting observables, so do you know of any simple tests of this assumption? If no simple ones, then a complicated one?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
