1302.4180 (Benjamin Schulz)

Review of Nelson's analysis of Bell's theorem    [PDF]

Benjamin Schulz
This article contains a review of Nelson's analysis of Bell's theorem. It shows that Bell's inequalities can be violated with a theory of local random variables if one accepts that the outcomes of these variables are not predetermined prior to measurement. Furthermore, there can be no model of the singlett state at all where the outcomes do not explicitely depend on the settings of the measurement devices. The article describes the relations between Bell's theorem and the Free Will theorem of Conway and Kochen. The article closes by relating the various assumptions needed to derive Bell's theorem with the reality criterion of EPR
