The Fallacy of the Arguments Against Local Realism in Quantum Phenomena

  • A. O. Barut


The arguments refuting local realistic theories, including those invoking Bell inequalities, are all based on a tacit, preconceived, already quantized (and as it turns out inadmissible) notion of what constitutes a “single event.” More appropriate models of single events with internal, classical (hidden) parameters reproduce all the quantum correlations after averaging.
