In this volume, leading experts in experimental as well as theoretical physics (both classical and quantum) and probability theory give their views on many intriguing (and still mysterious) problems regarding the probabilistic foundations of physics. The problems discussed during the conference include EinsteinOCoPodolskyOCoRosen paradox, Bell's inequality, realism, nonlocality, role of Kolmogorov model of probability theory in quantum physics, von Mises frequency theory, quantum information, computation, OC quantum effectsOCO in classical physics. Contents: Locality and Bell's Inequality (L Accardi & M Regoli); Refutation of Bell's Theorem (G Adenier); Forcing Discretization and Determination in Quantum History Theories (B Coecke); Some Remarks on Hardy Functions Associated with Dirichlet Series (W Ehm); Ensemble Probabilistic Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics without the Thermodynamic Limit (D H E Gross); An Approach to Quantum Probability (S Gudder); Innovation Approach to Stochastic Processes and Quantum Dynamics (T Hida); Origin of Quantum Probabilities (A Khrennikov); OC ComplementarityOCO or Schizophrenia: Is Probability in Quantum Mechanics Information or Onta? (A F Kracklauer); A Probabilistic Inequality for the KochenOCoSpecker Paradox (J-A Larsson); Quantum Stochastics. The New Approach to the Description of Quantum Measurements (E Loubenets); Is Random Event a Core Question? Some Remarks and a Proposal (P Rocchi); Quantum Cryptography in Space and Bell's Theorem (I Volovich); and other papers. Readership: Graduate students and researchers in quantum physics, mathematical physics, theoretical physics, stochastic processes, and probability & statistics."

Page 7 - But on one supposition we should, in my opinion, absolutely hold fast: the real factual situation of the system 52 is independent of what is done with the system Si, which is spatially separated from the former.
Page 7 - In a theory in which parameters are added to quantum mechanics to determine the results of individual measurements, without changing the statistical predictions, there must be a mechanism whereby the setting of one measuring device can influence the reading of another instrument, however remote.
