      OK, Bell's inequality is just one example showing that quantum mechanics differs from classical physics. This statement should be totally unsurprising – just like the statement that relativistic physics differs from non-relativistic physics – and indeed, almost every physical situation is predicted to end up differently by classical and.   Studying pairs of correlated quantum-mechanical particles separated in space, in a composite “entangled” state, Bell () showed that the joint ascription of hidden-variables and locality to the system led to an inequality that is violated by the predictions of quantum mechanics.

      About half of Bell's papers on the foundations of quantum mechanics deal with Bohmian mechanics. In one of these papers, Bell even formulated a Bohmian version quantum field theory. Goldstein has collected various of these passages on Bohmian mechanics that illustrate Bell's appreciation for the theory and the insights that arise from it. the inequalities, as well as in what sense this violation indicates the presence of quantum structure. 2 Bell Inequalities and Clauser Horne Inequalities In this section we review Bell inequalities, as well as Clauser and Horne inequalities. We flrst consider Bohm’s original example that violates these inequalities in the microworld.

    This was the 4th conference arranged by ICMM on probabilistic foundations of classical and quantum physics. The first three conferences took place in , , and Some closely related conferences are Bohmian Mechanics and Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations , , and The fact that our final form of Bell's inequality is experimentally violated indicates that at least one of the three assumptions we have made have been shown to be wrong. You will also recall that earlier we pointed out that the theorem and its experimental tests have nothing to do with Quantum Mechanics.

This book discusses the physical and mathematical foundations of modern quantum mechanics and three realistic quantum theories that John Stuart Bell called "theories without observers" because they do not merely speak about measurements but develop an objective picture of the physical world.

The rest of the book recounts the Tausk episode; the Varenna Summer School on the foundations of quantum mechanics, described as “the Woodstock of quantum dissidents”; and key experimental advances from the s onwards, including the aforementioned tests of Bell inequalities.

Bell's theorem proves that quantum physics is incompatible with local hidden variable was introduced by physicist John Stewart Bell in a paper titled "On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen Paradox", referring to a thought experiment that Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen used to argue that quantum physics is an "incomplete" theory.

Since the appearance of Bell's inequality, it has become apparent that local hidden variable models cannot be compatible with the complete mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics [1,2, 3, 4.

Other new topics include semiclassical quantum mechanics, motion in a magnetic field, the S matrix and inelastic collisions, radiation and scattering of light, identical particle systems and the Dirac equation. A topic that was all but totally neglected inbut which has flourished increasingly since, is that of the foundations of quantum.

A major part of Bell's achievement was showing that Bell's inequality is implied by local realism, while standard QM predictions violate it. Experiments like Aspect's have since shown that Bell's inequalities are violated in reality, refuting local realism, in a way that is consistent with standard QM.
