Trigonometric Functions at a Crossroads

  •  Jiri Stavek    


In the history of physics trigonometric functions played several times a very critical role at crossroads. This time we are at a crossroads with the interpretation of correlation events of entangled particles. In this approach we propose to describe the experimental data of Alice and Bob using not so known trigonometric functions. Claudius Theorem (based on the trigonometric family of Sagitta and Cosagitta) evalutes the probabilistic occurrence of correlated and anticorrelated events. David Theorem (based on the trigonometric family of Hacoversine) describes the probability of the following identical events and gaps between the following identical events. In this trigonometric concept the Team of Alice, Bob, Claudius and David formulated a camouflage legend for Eve – “spooky action at a distance”. Merlin (with unbounded computational ability) should verify the truth of this statement. Trent (a trusted arbitrator, who acts as a neutral third party) should analyze these data and this trigonometric concept. Victor (a verifier) should make his decision which way we should continue in our future research: either through the Niels Bohr avenue or through the Albert Einstein sidewalk.
