Watson, Gordon (2010) Bell's theorem refuted in line with Bell's hope and Einstein's ideas. [Quantropy eprint]
Supporting Einstein's advocacy for local realism and hidden-variables, we show that measurements reveal the equivalence classes to which hidden-variables belong. We show that equivalence classes are the fundamental concepts that any analysis of measurement requires. We show that the correlation of measurement outcomes equates to the pre- and post-measurement correlation of equivalence classes. We show that hidden-variables remain hidden; but measurements enable us to name their equivalence classes. We reveal the local realistic variables that alone determine measurement outcomes. We identify Bell's unrealistic assumption about measurements and refute his theorem. Responding to Bell’s hope for a simple constructive model of quantum entanglement, we also deliver Einstein's wish for a classical account of EPR correlations. We thus provide a basis for understanding quantum mechanics in terms of local realism and deterministic digital outcomes.
