Quantum generalizations of Bell's inequality

  • B. S. Cirel'son


Even though quantum correlations violate Bell's inequality, they satisfy weaker inequalities of a similar type. Some particular inequalities of this kind are proved here. The more general case of instruments located in different space-time regions is also discussed in some detail.
