The delusions of the Bell deniers are now reaching comical proportions. It's like flat earthers claiming "satelites do not exist."

Just for the record, I fully agree with minkwe that "There is no such thing as a CHSH urn experiment."
.

It would be one thing to claim that the long run upper bound for the CHSH urn experiment is not 2, but 4. That would just be silly, because the experiment is so easy to perform (or simulate), even if one doesn't understand the proof.

But to claim that the experiment does not exist is beyond ridiculous.

@Heine Doesn't matter. It's irrelevant.

Are you using the word in its sense in elementary calculus, or in its sense in elementary statistics and probability?

Now you are pretending you don't know what I mean. I'm not interested in anything to do with settings or particles. Your proof has no settings or particles. It's just a mathematical tautology involving ONLY outcomes.

Each X, Y in your proof can be considered as the outcome of a coin toss. I already told you this previously and you decided to dodge. In that case, how many independent coin tosses are involved in Z? And how many independent coin tosses are involved in the Bell test experiment. This is exactly the same question and you understand it perfectly.

Simple answer: There are 4 independent coin tosses ($X_1,X_2,X_3,X_4$) in your proof
Simple answer: There are 8 independent coin tosses in a Bell test Experiment $X^1_1, Y^1_1, X^2_1, Y^2_2, X^3_2, Y^3_1, X^4_2, Y^4_2$ no need to play word games.

There is no such thing as a CHSH urn experiment.

Richard, don't argue with him anymore. He has been harping his misunderstanding for nearly ten years and nothing has helped. An now he is even denying the existence of the CHSH urn experiment.

No point in arguing about it, as Heinera says. Michel’s mind is closed. That’s sad.

Yeah, right. I was talking about this whole thread by Heine is an irrelevant piece of junk since Bell's junk physics theory is shot down and Gill's junk theory is now shot down.

### Re: Pedagogical proofs of Bell's theorem

Let's me just summarize the discussion so far:

Joy disagrees with everything in the first post in this thread. He has not said anything about whether he believes the statistical long term upper bound of 2 will hold.

minkwe complains there is only one urn. Doesn't matter, since the upper bound will hold no matter how many urns you have, as long as you pick the urn independently of Alice and Bob's coin tosses.

FrediFizzx claims to have found a logical error in my first post, but refuses to tell us what it is.

Anything more that could be added?

Oh sure..., That you Bell fanatics are finished and don't even know it.

Perhaps I should explain how the analytical definitions from the paper match up with the code? Sure, might as well. But I believe it is already explained in the paper. Here is the current version of the quaternion version of the code.

https://www.wolframcloud.com/obj/fredif ... -forum3.nb
EPRsims/newCS-15-S3quat-prodcalc-forum3.pdf

And a link to the paper.

http://dx.doi.org/10.13140/RG.2.2.28311.91047/2

So, in the paper we have the main equations (13) and (20) which may be a little confusing at first until you go thru the other definitions. Think of just one event. Then A and B will just be equal to 1 of the 3 possibilities. The other 2 possibilities at that time will be "no result". This in the code here,

outA=Sort[Catenate[{listA4,outA2,listA6}],#1[[3]]<#2[[3]]&]; (*Combine lists and sort*) (completely local)
outB=Sort[Catenate[{listB4,outB2,listB6}],#1[[3]]<#2[[3]]&]; (*Combine lists and sort*)

Next we have the definitions that correspond to the code. For A1, A2, B1 and B2. The code is this,

outA1=Select[outAa,MemberQ[#,g1]&]; (*Split outAa into outA1 and outA2*)(completely local)
outA2=Select[outAa,MemberQ[#,f1]&];
outB1=Select[outBb,MemberQ[#,g2]&]; (*Split outBb into outB1 and outB2*)(completely local)
outB2=Select[outBb,MemberQ[#,f2]&];

What they do is separate the events for pre-result outAa and outBb into A1 and B1 events that are greater than the HV process and for A2 and B2, events that are less than the HV process. Exactly like it says in the paper for eqs. (14), (15), (21) and (22). Next in the paper we have A3 and B3 eqs. (16) and (23). The code for that is,

listB3=Select[outB1,Intersection[{#[[3]]},listbd3]!={#[[3]]}&];

And easy to see that it is for events from outA1 and outB1 that don't match via trial numbers via outA4 and outB4. Then of course we have A4 and B4 from eqs. (17) and (24) for which the code is,

listA4=Select[outA1,Intersection[{#[[3]]},list23]=={#[[3]]}&]; (completely local)
listB4=Select[outB1,Intersection[{#[[3]]},list13]=={#[[3]]}&];

Also easy to see that it is for events from outA1 and outB1 where the trial numbers do match. Perhaps we should reverse n3 and n4 to make the flow better in the paper. Then we have A5 and B5 in the paper eqs. (18) and (25) for which the code is,

$\text{A5}=\text{\lambda 2}[[i]] \text{sgn}(\xi +\text{qa}[[4]]);$ (completely local)
$\text{B5}=-\text{\lambda 2}[[i]] \text{sgn}(\xi +\text{qb}[[4]]);$

I should mention here that A5 and B5 are recorded as the 5th element for every event in the tables for the A and B sides. And these are for use in A6 and B6 eqs. (19) and (26). Which in the code are,

Do[If[listA3[[i]][[2]]==listA3[[i]][[5]],qaaq[[i]]=1,qaaq[[i]]=Re[listA36[[i]]**listA37[[i]]]];
listA6[[i]]={listA3[[i]][[1]],qaaq[[i]]*listA3[[i]][[2]],listA3[[i]][[3]],listA3[[i]][[4]],listA3[[i]][[5]],listA3[[i]][[6]],listA3[[i]][[7]]}, {i, M}](completely local)
Do[If[listB3[[i]][[2]]==listB3[[i]][[5]],qbbq[[i]]=1,qbbq[[i]]=Re[listB36[[i]]**listB37[[i]]]];
listB6[[i]]={listB3[[i]][[1]],qbbq[[i]]*listB3[[i]][[2]],listB3[[i]][[3]],listB3[[i]][[4]],listB3[[i]][[5]],listB3[[i]][[6]],listB3[[i]][[7]]}, {i, M2}](completely local)

Yep, those two are doozies but you can see the spinorial sign changes here qaaq[[i]]*listA3[[i]][[2]] and here qbbq[[i]]*listB3[[i]][[2]]. So, "emulates" comes out of the paper description. Ok, I think that is it. Questions?

Joy has said that he's a physicist and couldn't care less about mathematics. His formulas are pictures, representing his physics dreams. FrediFizzx just keeps growing his spaghetti code which draws a negative cosine in ever more complicated ways. Michel's mind is made up; he's not going to study anybody's mathematics or look at anybody else's computer code, since he *knows* in advance that it will be bad physics. What these guys have in common is that they know from looking at Bell (1964) that Bell was wrong and they certainly aren't going to waste any of their time looking at works of Bell, or works of followers of Bell, which came later.

It's interesting that many Bell-deniers have a strong background in chemistry or (molecular)-biology or engineering, rather than in hardcore physics. I think this is correlated with a weaker mathematical background.

I don't think I ever claim that. I said this junk is irrelevant! Since Bell and Gill are shot down to pieces!

And then we have more rambling almost nonsense from the master nonsense maker.

You are right to call my ramblings "almost nonsense". They contain pearls of wisdom, one cannot expect everyone to appreciate them.

You said "I said this junk is irrelevant! Since Bell and Gill are shot down to pieces!" As you know, I believe that that's where you are completely wrong.

But you keep reacting to it!

Let’s get back on topic, folks. There are strictly mathematical results called, for better or for worse, Bell’s theorem. Some people say it should be called Boole’s theorem. Indeed, you can find it in his book from the 1850’s. It is legitimate to look for more pedagogical proofs than, say, Boole’s or Bell’s.

What more does one need to know other than it is mathematically impossible for anything to exceed the inequalities! You Bell fans always choke on that simple fact. It's irrelevant junk.
