what does position entangled mean (physically)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The below is an attempt to understand position entanglement. It may require a lot of corrections and modifications. Look forward to your responses.

A photon (A) would have a probability distribution, so would it's entangled twin/photon (B).

The probabilities distribution would actually be spherical in a 3D space (or 4D time-space, if you will).

To simplyfy.....in the below analysis..... let's look at just one dimension....say x-axis

So if we calculate that the 90% probability forPhoton Alies between say x = 1 to 5

and the 90% probability forPhoton Blies between say x = 100 to 105

i.e. the photon are separated by 99 units.

Now if we were to find:

Photon A at say x=1 then we would find Photon B at 100

Photon A at say x=2.5 then we would find Photon B at 102.5

[Assuming there are (symmetric or anti-symmetric, depending upon which is the correct one) entangled etc]
