Quantum Action-at-a-Distance: The Mystery of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Correlations

Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)

Abstract

Among Einstein’s many remarkable papers, one of the most astonishing was published in 1935(1) (in collaboration with Rosen and Podolsky) with the objective of establishing the incomplete character of the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics (CIQM). Far from being obsolete or refuted it is still now, in 1986, at the very center of the current crucial epistemological confrontation on the physical and philosophical implications of quantum mechanics. Its discussion, originally limited to the question of the complete (or incomplete) character of the quantum-mechanical description (Bohr believed in completeness; Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen did not), has indeed blossomed, in successive steps, into questions concerning the space-time coordination of quantum events and their objective existence beyond measurements; the causal nature of physical laws; the wave-particle dualism; the existence of hidden variables; the nature of quantum correlations; and so on. All these questions were already present in the Bohr-Einstein debate in which strongly antagonistic positions were defended: Einstein tended to a causal-deterministic conception while Bohr’s approach led in the opposite direction.
