Simulating POVMs on EPR pairs with 5.7 bits of expected communication

  • A. A. MéthotEmail author


We present a classical protocol for simulating correlations obtained by bipartite POVMs on an EPR pair. The protocol uses shared random variables (also known as local hidden variables) augmented by 5.7 bits of expected communication.
