It contains the OUTER product of two detector orientations, the detectors being spacelike separated. (There is no problem with the INNER product and neither product has anything to do with space-time curvature.)

No, there Joy is talking about the spin of the two particles at creation.  So $$L(a \times b, \lambda)$$ is local.

But a and b need not exist when the two particles are created because the detectors can be set while the particles are in flight. If  a and b did exist when the two particles are created, then that would be, most certainly, a NON-local connection!

Please read the text before that.  a and b have nothing to do with detectors yet.  Joy is just showing a bivector identity.  Really it is just math at that point but if you put it to the physics of the particle pair, just consider it at creation.

Equation (50) is used in connecting equation (65) to (66), where a and b have everything to do with spacelike separated detectors. It seems that, at (65), Dr Christian puts (50) into the physics of the particle pair NON-locally.

The detector bivectors are D(a) and D(b). But it is easy to see that they drop out of the calculation. I think it is all explained in the text very well. gill1109 Junior Member Posts: 46 Threads: 0 Joined: Jun 2016 Reputation: 0 07-07-2016, 08:16 AM (This post was last modified: 07-07-2016, 08:18 AM by gill1109.)

(There is no problem with the INNER product and neither product has anything to do with space-time curvature.) The right-most term of equation (50) is quite simply *wrong*: it contradicts (51) and (52) according to which $$L(a, \lambda) L(b, \lambda) = \lambda I a \lambda I b = - ab$$, independent of lambda. I use here the facts lambda^2 = 1, I^2 = -1, and the fact that the scalar lambda and pseudo-scalar I commute with everything.

What are s1 and s2 when Dr Christian has recently employed (with a and b on 23 May 2016) the troublesome NON-local equation (50) as equation (23) in https://arxiv.org/pdf/1501.03393.pdf ?

(50) x and y if you wish so you don't mix them up with a and b from detectors. Eqs. (50) and (23) in the other paper are just mathematical identities of the bivector algebra. If you consider that it all happens instantaneously the cross product is local. As well as the dot product. You seem to be unnecessarily confusing yourself. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
