• Introduction • Setup at TU Delft • Data evaluation • Discussion

Statistical analysis LHVM imply limitations in probability or expectation

Finite number of events

Hypothesis test - Null hypothesis: the experiment was governed by a LHVM - p-value: Probability of data at least as extreme as that observed given a LHVM maximized over all LHVMs. - p-value is not the probability that our experiment is ruled by a LHVM

Rigorous bound • No unfounded assumptions: i.i.d. • No approximations: Gaussian

Gill, Found. of Prob. and Phy., 179-206 (2003) Zhang, Glancy, Knill, PRA 84 062118 (2011) Bierhorst, Found. Phys. 44, 736-761 (2014)

Local hidden variable model (LHVM) governs the experiment: 1. Setting choices are independent conditioned on the history 2. Inputs have a bias from uniform 𝝉𝝉 (𝟏𝟏𝟏𝟏−𝟓𝟓 ) 3. Settings and outcomes at both sites are conditionally independent on the history 4. Arbitrary statistics at heralding station

P(𝐶𝐶 = 1) ≤ 3/4+3(𝜏𝜏 + 𝜏𝜏 2 )

Upper bound on the p-value Experimental Data - n = number of GO rounds - k = number of wins - 𝜏𝜏 = bias of the RNGs

p-value ≔ max 𝑃𝑃 𝑎𝑎𝑎𝑎 𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙 𝑘𝑘 𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 𝑛𝑛 𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒 𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿) 𝐿𝐿𝐻𝐻𝐻𝐻𝑀𝑀

Remarks - Upper bound is the tail of an i.i.d. distribution -

Elkouss, Wehner in preparation (2015)

Evaluation of the experiment Gathered data - 1 event per hour - 245 events over more than 220 hours - 196 “wins” over the 245 events

How do we interpret it?

Hypothesis test - Null hypothesis: the experiment was governed by a LHVM - p-value: probability of data at least as extreme as that observed given a LHVM maximized over all LHVMs.

p-value ≔ max 𝑃𝑃 𝑎𝑎𝑎𝑎 𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙𝑙 196 𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤𝑤 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 245 𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒𝑒 𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿𝐿) ≤ 0.039 𝐿𝐿𝐻𝐻𝐻𝐻𝑀𝑀
