Entanglement, bell nonlocality, and physical principles for quantum theory

Abstract

Quantum theory is one of the most controversial and well succeeded scientific theories ever developed. Controversial because there is no consensus regarding the physical meaning of its most fundamental objects, a century after its creation; and well succeeded because its predictions have been confirmed with unprecedented precision. A research field that is referred as foundations of quantum theory has been gaining importance by dealing, at the same time, with these two apparently contradictory facets of the theory, investigating its particulars from operational aspects, and identifying fundamental concepts as resources for quantum information processing. This project contextualizes and describes research activities on the foundations of quantum theory and quantum information theory. Two central objectives are highlighted: (i) to investigate and better understand the relations between entanglement and Bell nonlocality, distinct concepts that, however, are intrinsically connected; (ii) to investigate the validity and extension of the information causality principle as a physical principle of quantum theory by means of the developments of new methods and criteria. From the scientific point of view, results from this project would have impact not only as advances on fundamental questions of quantum theory, but also as potential applications in quantum information theory. From the institutional point of view, this project would mean the first and important step towards the development and establishment of foundations of quantum theory research group at Instituto de Física "Gleb Wataghin".
