Abstract

Bell in 1966 showed the predictions of quantum mechanics to be incompatible with those of local hidden variable theories. Experiments on Bell's result and much subsequent work support quantum mechanics indicates the failure of local hidden variable theories. Two features appear characteristic of the contradiction of quantum mechanics with local hidden variable. First, the measurements considered have discrete outcomes and secondly, the measurements performed are intrinsically microscopic. The disagreement between the quantum mechanics of certain entangled quantum superpositions of coherent states with those of local hidden variable theories for situation involving continuous quadrature phase amplitude measurements is discussed.
