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


The Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) experiment was originally suggested as a criticism of the conceptual completeness of the quantum theory.(1) However, with the advent of Bell’s theorem(2) it became possible to look on it as a test between locality and nonlocality in the basic properties of matter.
