Stochastic Electrodynamics and the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Argument

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

Abstract

The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) argument(1) was originally intended to demonstrate the incompleteness of quantum mechanics, but since the discovery of the Bell inequality(2) it has been used (see the introductory chapter of this book) to indicate a point at which we may expect the quantum theory to break down. The crisis comes about because, as foreseen by Einstein himself,(3) quantum theory predicts violations of the Principle of Local Action. (4,5)* This principle, which is a consequence of Special Relativ-ity,(6) forbids the existence of any action propagating faster than light.
