Really Random

Really Random

(p.87) 4 Really Random

Jeffrey Bub

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that the taste of a Popescu–Rohrlich banana for a particular peeling is intrinsically random with respect to the preparation of the pair, in the sense that the tastes are independent of any events at all that occur, in any reference frame, before the bananas are formed as a Popescu–Rohrlich pair. A pair of Popescu-Rohrlich bananas is the analogue in Bananaworld of a maximally entangled pair of qubits. The final section of the chapter is about the intrinsic randomness of qubits and other quantum systems.

Keywords:   free-choice principle, no-signaling principle, intrinsic randomness, no cloning, eavesdropper
