Grothendieck's Inequality, Quantum Entanglement, and Tsirelson's Bound. 2 October 12, 2017 - 4:00pm - 4:50pm Functional Analysis Seminar

Speaker Information


Abstract: In this talk, we discuss Grothendieck's inequality (GI), which began as a functional analysis result, 
and its use in quantum mechanics and Einstein's "Hidden Variable Theory" (HVT). Using GI, we are able to 
disprove Einstein's HVT and we use the proof to get a strong lower bound on Grothendieck's constant $K_{G}^{ℝ}$.
