Questions tagged [correlations]

In Bell test experiments, the term quantum correlation has come to mean the expectation value of the product of the outcomes on the two sides. In other words, the expected change in physical characteristics as one quantum system passes through an interaction site.

How is Bell’s Inequality converted to the CHSH inequality?

Bell’s inequality is $$S = P(a,b)-P(a,d)+P(c,b)+P(c,d) \leq 2,$$ which is calculated as $$S = ab – ad + cb + cd \leq 2.$$ The CHSH version is: $$E = \frac{N_{11} + N_{00} - N_{10} -N_{01}} {N_{11} + ...

Why is $P(1,2)_{\text{same}} = \frac{1}{4}$ and not $\frac{1}{2}$ in Preskill's Bell experiment?

Context: Three coins on the table. Each is either heads or tails. You can uncover any one of the three coins, revealing whether it is heads or tails but then you choose two the other two coins ...

Why is correlation in the $X$ basis represented as $X\otimes X = 1$?

As far as I know, correlation of two qubits in the $X$ basis implies that under a simultaneous bit flip, the composite quantum state must be invariant. For instance, $A$ and $B$ can be said to be ...

Determining whether $P(ab|xy)$ factorizes in Bell experiments

Continuing from my previous (1, 2) questions on Brunner et al.'s paper on Bell nonlocality. Again, we have the following standard Bell experiment setup: where independent inputs $x,y \in \{0, 1\}$ ...

Definition of locality in Bell experiments

Continuing from my previous question on Brunner et al.'s paper; so given a standard Bell experimental setup: where independent inputs $x,y \in \{0, 1\}$ decide the measurement performed by Alice &...

Bell nonlocality and conditional independence

I've been working through the paper Bell nonlocality by Brunner et al. after seeing it in user glS' answer here. Early on in the paper, the standard Bell experimental setup is defined: Where $x, y \...

Are correlations stronger than those allowed by quantum mechanics possible?

We know how a quantum correlation setup can help us with a better probability of winning games like the CHSH. But what is the upper bound that physics can allow? Is it the quantum correlation setup? ...

How are EPR Pairs used in quantum computing?

Context Lately, I have been reading a scholarly paper entitled An Introduction to Quantum Computing for Non-Physicists which discusses the EPR Paradox. The paper states that: Einstein, Podolsky ...

What is the difference between signaling and non-signaling quantum correlations, and what is a signaling channel?

This article talks about correlation and causality in quantum mechanics. In the abstract, under Framework for local quantum mechanics, it says (emphasis mine): The most studied, almost epitomical, ...
