Refutation of Bell's theorem
(38K, RevTex4, 8 pages.)
ABSTRACT. Bell's theorem is based on a linear combination of spin
correlation functions, each of these functions being characterized
by a different couple of arguments. The meaning of the
simultaneous presence of these different couples of arguments in
the same equation can be understood in two radically different
ways: either as a strongly objective meaning, that is, all
correlation functions are counterfactual properties of the same
set of particle pairs, or as a weakly objective meaning, that is,
each correlation function is measured on a different (and
contextual) set of particle pairs. It is demonstrated that once
this meaning is explicated, no discrepancy can appear between
local realistic theories and quantum mechanics, and that the
discrepancy exhibited by Bell's theorem is due to a meaningless
comparison between the local realistic inequality written within
strongly objective interpretation (thus relevant to a single set
of particle pairs) and the quantum mechanical prediction written
within weakly objective interpretation (thus relevant to several
different sets of particle pairs).
