Caroline H Thompson

:"For the American film director, see Caroline Thompson."Caroline H. Thompson (1943–8 February 2006} was a British computer scientist specialising in theoretical physics. Caroline H. Thompson's noted contribution to physics has been the re-examination of Bell's Theorem, EPR Paradox, and Aspect's Experiment. She has shown that "local realism" is not a dead concept with the implication that a deterministic formulation of quantum mechanics is, at least in principle, theoretically possible.

Ms. Thompson's work does not support "quack" or "fringe" attempts at unification. She was vehemently against being associated with those who, in her opinion, were "quack" or "fringe" elements in physics. But, her theoryFact|date=August 2007 does "open the door" to deterministic formulations which may provide more satisfying, intuitive, and elegant pictures of the atomic (and sub-atomic) world.
