    Ispired by the first paper of J. Bell (Physics 1, 195) of 1964, various demonstrations of various inequalities have been found (see in ref. 5). We follow here the demonstration of J.F. Clauser, M.A. Horne, A. Shimony and R.A. Holt, Phys. Rev. Lett. 23, 880 (1969) This last paper showed for the first time the possibility of an actual experiment.Google Scholar
