Locality Quantum Physics#

Locality is a fundamental principle behind all physical interactions. It says that each physical system can only interact with other systems in its immediate vicinity, so that interactions between two distant objects must be mediated by an intermediary.

The special theory of relativity limits the speed at which all such influences can travel to the speed of light, {\displaystyle c} c. Therefore, the principle of locality implies that an event at one point cannot cause a simultaneous result at another point. An event at point {\displaystyle A} A cannot cause a result at point {\displaystyle B} B in a time less than {\displaystyle T=D/c} {\displaystyle T=D/c}, where {\displaystyle D} D is the distance between the points.
