Physics, Particle Physics / Astrophysics / Cosmology, Theoretical, Computational, and Statistical Physics

Nonlocality was discovered by John Bell in 1964, in the context of the debates about quantum theory, but is a phenomenon that can be studied in its own right. Its observation proves that measurements ... More
