An Exposition of Bell’s Theorem
The purpose of this lecture is to give a self-contained demonstration of a version of Bell’s theorem and a discussion of the significance of the theorem and the experiments which it inspired. The lecture should be comprehensible to people who have had no previous acquaintance with the literature on Bell’s theorem, but I hope that explicitness about premisses and consequences will make it useful even to those who are familiar with the literature.
