  • Entangled States and the Compatibility Between Quantum Mechanics and Relativity (1997) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    It is possible to prove that Quantum Mechanics is incompatible with Special Relativity if the postulate of the reduction of wave packet is included in the axiomes of this theory. In this paper an apparatus based on a Michelson interferometer with a phase-conjugate mirror is described; it is proved that it is able to transmit superluminal signals using the intrinsic non-locality of quantum mechanics. The result is obtained using only the axioms of quantum mechanics and the wave packet reduction postulate.

  • Correlation Functions and Einstein Locality (1994) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    Among the problem concerning the foundation of quantum mechanics (QM), the disagreement between this theory and relativity is the main and most difficult one to solve. The argument was posed in 1935 by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen in a famous paper in which they proved the incompatiability among three hypotheses: a) quantum mechanics is correct; b) quantum mechanics is complete; c) local "elements of reality" exist associated with the atomic system that determine the results of performed measurements.
