John Stewart Bell

John Stewart Bell (June 28, 1928 - October 1, 1990) was an Irish physicist.

Bell was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In 1964 demonstrated that quantum mechanics requires supraluminal[?] signaling. He showed that von Neumannís proof against deterministic quantum mechanics lacked rigor and that Bohmís work got around von Neumannís objections through the use of supraluminal signaling. He later defended his work against those distorting itís meaning to favor in-deterministic quantum theories. He became a supporter of Bohmís work and called its suppression a ďscandalĒ within physics.

He died in Belfast.
