hidden-variable theory of the second kind[′hid·ən ¦ver·ē·ə·bəl ‚thē·ə·rē əvthə ′sek·ənd ′kīnd]
A theory, postulating the existence of hidden variables, that predicts deviations from the statistical predictions of quantum mechanics, even for the equilibrium situations; such theories are required to satisfy a locality condition. Also known as local hidden-variable theory.
