Paper IPM / P / 7175  


Abstract:  
We have previously shown that in the context of an ideal Bohm's version of
the EPR thought experiment, there is no outcome independent hidden variable
theory which can reproduce all the predictions of quantum mechanics
[IPM/P1999/041]. Here, we want to show that in any experiment (ideal or
actual) involving two conjugate variables, the condition of outcome
independence is violated at the level of a causal hidden variable theory,
whenever the exchangeability condition holds for quantum conditional
probabilities in the ideal case.
