### Abstract

There has been considerable discussion of the claim by Stapp [1] that quantum theory is incompatible with locality. In this note I analyze the meaning of some of the statements used in this discussion. 1

[1], Stapp considers two particles in the (entangled) Hardy state =-=[8]-=-, on which measurements can be performed in two spacelike-separated regions called Right and Left. On the Right, measurement is made of either of two non-compatible properties called R1 and R2; simila... |
