Description:
This book presents the current views of leading physicists on the bizarre property of quantum theory: nonlocality. Einstein viewed this theory as 'spooky action at a distance' which, together with randomness, resulted in him being unable to accept quantum theory. The contributions in the book describe, in detail, the bizarre aspects of nonlocality, such as Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering and quantum teleportation -- a phenomenon which cannot be explained in the framework of classical physics, due its foundations in quantum entanglement.
