Causality and Nonlocality as Axioms for Quantum Mechanics
Popescu, Sandu; Rohrlich, Daniel
Keyword(s): foundations of quantum mechanics; nonlocality; axioms
Abstract: Quantum mechanics permits nonlocality - both nonlocal correlations and nonlocal equations of motion - while respecting relativistic causality. Is quantum mechanics the unique theory that reconciles nonlocality and causality? We consider two models, going beyond quantum mechanics, of nonlocality: "superquantum" correlations, nonlocal "jamming" of correlations. These models are consistent with some definitions of nonlocality and causality.
