Compatibility of Quantum Entanglement with the Special Theory of Relativity


The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox is resolved dynamically by using spin-dependent quantum trajectories inferred from Dirac’s equation for a relativistic electron. The theory provides a practical computational methodology for studying entanglement versus disentanglement for realistic Hamiltonians.
