Title
 "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.

15 MINUTES BEFORE THE SEMINAR, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL FROM RUTGERS UNIVERSITY WITH SUBJECT LINE “RU Math-Phys Seminar”. THIS EMAIL WILL INCLUDE A LINK AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO JOIN THE WEBINAR. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS PLEASE EMAIL shadit@math.rutgers.edu
