``````## A simulation of my 3-sphere model for the EPR-Bohm correlation. It should
## be viewed as a supplement to the one built in http://rpubs.com/jjc/13965.
## Further details and extensive discussion of the model can be found on my
## blog: http://libertesphilosophica.info/blog/. The code for the surfaces
## plotted below has been adapted from a similar simulation by Ch'an Satori.

## The theoretical description of the model can be found in this paper:

## This is S^2 version (aka 3D version: think of S^2 as a surface in R^3)
## This version has been adapted from Richard Gill's optimized version of
## Michel Fodje's original simulation of the model, which can be found here:
## http://rpubs.com/gill1109/EPRB3opt. Later Richard Gill improved his 3D
## version by employing the exact probability distribution derived by Philip
## Pearle in his classic 1970 paper: http://rpubs.com/gill1109/Pearle. It
## should be noted, however, that, unlike Pearle's model, the 3-sphere model
## has nothing whatsoever to do with data rejection or detection loophole.

## All of the above simulations are inspired by the original simulation of
## the 3-sphere model by Chantal Roth, https://github.com/chenopodium/JCS2.

## The pink surface below represents the correlation predicted by my 3-sphere
## model, the blue surface represents the corresponding prediction of quantum
## mechanics, the yellow surface represents Bell's local model of 1964, and
## gray surface represents the maximally strong (unphysical) box correlation.
