Nonlocality as an axiom for quantum theory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Quantum mechanics and relativistic causality together imply nonlocality: nonlocal
correlations (that violate the CHSH inequality) and nonlocal equations of motion (the Aharonov-Bohm effect). Can we invert the logical order? We consider a conjecture that nonlocality and relativistic causality together imply quantum mechanics. We show that correlations preserving relativistic causality can violate the CHSH inequality more strongly
than quantum correlations.
