Entanglement Revisited
Green College Coach House - October 8, 2003

Arthur Fine

University of Washington

Quantum entanglement, the uncanny coupling of distant quantum objects, is increasingly seen as the fundamental feature of quantum systems, replacing (or perhaps explaining) the complementarity of that Bohr promoted for that position.  Prof. Fine looks at the development of this concept, which originates in the writings of Einstein and Schdinger, and has now became a technological resource (for instance in the development of quantum cryptography and teleportation).  He asks whether entanglement is essentially a non-classical feature and whether it is tied into holistic quantum metaphysics.
