Among the problem concerning the foundation of quantum mechanics (QM), the disagreement between this theory and relativity is the main and most difficult one to solve. The argument was posed in 1935 by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen in a famous paper in which they proved the incompatiability among three hypotheses: a) quantum mechanics is correct; b) quantum mechanics is complete; c) local "elements of reality" exist associated with the atomic system that determine the results of performed measurements.
