No-Signaling in Quantum Mechanics

  • Mátyás KoniorczykEmail author

We review some concepts and reasonings regarding the notion of no-signaling and its relation to quantum mechanics in bipartite Bell-type scenarios. We recapitulate the no-signaling property of joint conditional probability distributions in geometrical and information theoretic terms. We summarize the reasons why quantum mechanics does not enable instantaneous communication. We make some comments on quantum field theoretic aspects.
