"Kochen, Specker, Bell, and Others”
Work of Ernst Specker (1960), Simon Kochen and Ernst Specker (1967), and John Bell (1964) concerning the non-existence of a hidden-variables theory reproducing the predictions of Quantum Mechanics is reviewed. Subsequently, a novel approach to Quantum Mechanics yielding - among other things - a solution of the measurement problem is outlined.
