Uncertainty Sets Limits On Quantum Nonlocality

An anonymous reader writes “Research in today’s issue of the journal Science helps explain why quantum theory is as weird as it is, but not weirder. Ex-hacker Stephanie Wehner and physicist Jonathan Oppenheim showed that the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle sets limits on Einstein’s ‘spooky action at a distance.’ Wired reports that the discovery was made by ‘thinking of things in the way a hacker might’ to uncover a fundamental link between the two defining properties of quantum physics (abstract, supplement). Oppenheim describes how uncertainty and nonlocality are like coding problems, enabling us to make a quantitative link between two of the cornerstones of quantum theory.”
