Indeed only spins are entangled in the wave function (27) not positions and motions like in the initial EPR experiment. This is a key point in the search for a physical explanation of nonlocal influences.
These three postulates are not necessary if we solve the time-dependent Schrodinger equation (double-slit experiment) or the Pauli equation with spatial extension (Stern-Gerlach and EPR experiments).
The standard EPR experiment involves two spatially separated particles emitted from the same source; measuring on one of them immediately influences properties of the other.
--Common historical context, e.g., two photons generated by the same process, as in the standard EPR experiments,
(For posterity, the name has become the EPR experiment.) The paper presented an experiment that followed quantum theory precisely, yet the theory itself predicts a "non-sensical" outcome of the experiment: a "spooky" instant interaction between two originally linked particles even if they were widely separate.
The positive EPR experiment holds profound implications not only for physics but for the interactions of science and religion.
One could predict that in the EPR experiment, the information medium between two particles is physical space itself.
Topics include the unification of classical and quantum probability theories, EPR-Bohm and the original EPR experiments, Bell's inequality, interpretations of its violation and loopholes, simulation of EPR-Bohm co-relations in the local realistic approach, nonlocality, contextual probabilistic models, subjective probability and quantum information, quantum logic, and results of recent experiments in quantum information, model theory, discrete time, dynamics, and the philosophic foundations of probability.
The company also offers system upgrades, such as the SuperQ-FT configuration for its eleXsys E 580 spectrometer, which allows pulse EPR experiments to be conducted with higher sensitivity.
At this temperature, background signals due to [Fe.sup.3+] impurities in Somasif are negligible in pulse EPR experiments owing to their short relaxation time.
Over the last few years Alain Aspect of the University of Paris-South at Orsay and his co-workers, particularly Philippe Grangier of the University of Paris-South and Jacques Vigue of the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, have done a series of experiments, variations of this and other long-suggested EPR experiments. The results have consistently been, as Aspect stated at the Bohr centennial symposium, what Bell's calculation expects for the reality of quantum correlations.
