Ed Gillis was born in Detroit, Michigan. He studied philosophy at the University of Michigan, and physics at the University of Colorado. He has authored several papers on quantum foundations, dealing, in particular, with connections between wave function collapse and elementary processes, how these connections might lead to an explanation of the no-superluminal-signaling principle in fundamental physical terms, and possible tests for collapse. He has also worked as an engineer on the development of sensor systems and control algorithms based on the information provided by those systems.
In a recent series of papers Wiseman, Cavalcanti, and Rieffel have outlined and contrasted two different views about what we now call Bell’s theorem. They also assert that Bell presented these two different versions at different times. This view is clearly at odds with the detailed explanation that Bell himself gave in his later writings. A careful examination of the historic 1964 paper in context shows clearly that Bell’s own later interpretation is the correct one.
