Abstract

This project gives two new proofs of the Bell-Kochen-Specker (BKS) Theorem for a system of four qubits: A proof based on 11 observables for a four-qubit system and a second proof based on 80 states and 265 orthogonal bases in a 16-dimensional state space derived from the previous observables. These proofs can be converted into proofs of Bell's Theorem by introducing four more qubits that are entangled with the previous qubits in a suitable fashion.
