The usual derivations by physicists of the Bell-CHSH inequalities as a limit imposed on any possible local hidden variables description of quantum systems seems so sloppy, that I'm tempted to ask you statisticians if there is a rigorous mathematical derivation of these results. Also, what would be a proper statistical analysis of the corresponding experiments (such as the one by Aspect et al)?
