Title: Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox and nonlocality in Quantum Mechanics

Abstract: The aim of my series of two lectures is two-fold: First, I would like to give more physical context to the mathematical formalism Michael Brannan presented in his first two lecture by reviewing the notions of wave functions and observables including momentum and some theory of angular momentum and spin. Second, using some of this theory I will discuss the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox on the model of the singlet of two spin 1/2 particles (Bohm's model) and Bells's proof that any local hidden variable theory is incompatible with quantum mechanics. Hopefully, all this will give more insight on the role of entangled states , the essence of quantum teleportation, and physical interpretation of other protocols discussed in class.
