Behaviour Entangled Photons Explained
« on: 24/10/2004 00:49:22 »
Okay

I believe this is how nature kept us wondered about entagled light.
How the photons could interact instantly with each other, which seams to have conflicted our understanding of nature. But don't be afraid it doesn't communicate faster then light...

Read my simple solution to it here.
Based on simple logic not on difficult formula's.
Anyone can understand it, i just solved it this week :

This will change how we think of light I believe, or even QM

kind regards Peter Boos


We are the flatlanders in a 4D-Light universe

If you can get that published, I've got a time machine built out of a flux capacitor and bobbed wire.

Actually, M-theory postulates that there are 7 of these "curled" up dimensions. I wouldn't say the problem has been solved, as such things are always hard to prove.

I know only slightly more quantum mechanics than you do and nothing about string theory (except that it involves 10 or 11 dimensions instead of 3 or 4). However, your suggestion is very interesting, here is a slightly more mathematical way of looking at it:
- Non-entangled (vectors) states can be factored into tensor products of lesser dimensional (vectors) states, whereas entangled states cannot.
I'll try to explain: take a pair of electrons each with two possible basis states, say spin up and spin down, e-a(x,y) and e-b(u,v). Each electron is thus in a 2-dimensiona state. The complete pair is thus in a 4-dimension state e2(x,y,u,v). If the electrons are not-entangeled, than e2 can be written e2 = alpha*e-a + beta*e-b, that is a linear combination of the 2 2-dimension states. however, if the pair is entangled, than the 4-dimension e2 cannot be described by any combination (whatsoever!) of 2-dimension states. It is a "purely" :) 4-dimensional state, wich sounds similar to your idea of entagled being really higher dimensional single objects.
