  • Published: 09 Aug 2002
Quantum cryptography, quantum computer project, space-time quantization program and recent computer experiments reported by Accardi and his collaborators show the importance and actuality of the discussion of the completeness of quantum mechanics (QM) started by Einstein more than 70 years ago. Many years ago we pointed out that the violation of Bell's inequalities is neither a proof of completeness of QM nor an indication of the violation of Einsteinian causality. We also indicated how and in what sense a completeness of QM might be tested with the help of statistical nonparametric purity tests. In this paper we review and refine our arguments. We also point ou...
