    Has Bell's Inequality a General Meaning for Hidden-Variable Theories?Georges Lochak - 1976 - Foundations of Physics 6 (2):173-184.
    We analyze the proof given by J. S. Bell of an inequality between mean values of measurement results which, according to him, would be characteristic of any local hidden-parameter theory. It is shown that Bell's proof is based upon a hypothesis already contained in von Neumann's famous theorem: It consists in the admission that hidden values of parameters must obey the same statistical laws as observed values. This hypothesis contradicts in advance well-known and certainly correct statistical relations in measurement results: (...)

    Irreversibility in Physics: Reflections on the Evolution of Ideas in Mechanics and on the Actual Crisis in Physics. [REVIEW]Georges Lochak - 1981 - Foundations of Physics 11 (7-8):593-621.
    The author proposes to show that the actual crisis in microphysics is principally due to the fact that, as quantum mechanics is a theory of stationary states and reversible movements, it fundamentally ignores the notion of a transitory process. The essential characteristic of quantum theories is the result of an evolution of more than two centuries; a period of development essentially devoted to the description of stationary and reversible phenomena. The author's point of view, which reflects that of the school (...)

    Louis de Broglie's Conception of Physics.Georges Lochak - 1993 - Foundations of Physics 23 (1):123-131.
    Principal aspects of Louis de Broglie's conception of science are here considered: requirement of clear representations in space and time, allowing a real “world-picture,” a search for causal laws behind statistical rules and the, final submission to experiment, which can only be questionned by theoretical imagination.

    Present, Predicted, and Hidden Probabilities.Louis de Broglie, Georges Lochak, Juan Alberto Beswick & José Vassalo-Pereira - 1976 - Foundations of Physics 6 (1):3-14.
    The general properties of measurements in microphysics are studied and the three types of probabilities that, according to the authors, appear in wave mechanics are set up. Such a distinction, together with the principle of the localization of the corpuscle as was laid down at the very introduction of the theory of the double solution, provides a good grasp of certain phenomena whose explanation according to the usual theory (which makes no use of permanent localization and where the three types (...)

    The Evolution of the Ideas of Louis de Broglie on the Interpretation of Wave Mechanics.Georges Lochak - 1982 - Foundations of Physics 12 (10):931-953.
    This paper is devoted to an analysis of the intellectual itinerary of Louis de Broglie, from the discovery of wave mechanics, until today. Essential attention is paid to the fact that this itinerary is far from being linear, since after a first attempt to develop his own views on wave mechanics through the theory of singular waves, Louis de Broglie abandoned it for twenty five years, under the influence of the Copenhagen School (even embracing the conceptions of the latter), until (...)

    Convergence and Divergence Between the Ideas of de Broglie and Schrödinger in Wave Mechanics.Georges Lochak - 1987 - Foundations of Physics 17 (12):1189-1203.
    This article discusses the historical similarities and differences between Schroedinger's and de Broglie's ideas on wave mechanics and gives a biographical account of their scientific relationship. Their arguments over questions such as quantum jumps, the viability of particles within wave mechanics theory, and the inclusion of space, time, and relativity in quantum mechanics are analyzed. The final section of the paper considers the overall role of Schroedinger's ideas in modern quantum mechanics.
