Finite Precision Measurement Nullifies the KochenSpecker Theorem
Abstract
Only finite precision measurements are experimentally reasonable, and they cannot distinguish a dense subset from its closure. We show that the rational vectors, which are dense in S^{2}, can be colored so that the contradiction with hidden variable theories provided by KochenSpecker constructions does not obtain. Thus, in contrast to violation of the Bell inequalities, no quantumoverclassical advantage for information processing can be derived from the KochenSpecker theorem alone.
