Abstract

Some entangled states have nonnegative Wigner representative function. The latter allow being viewed as a distribution function of local hidden variables. It is argued herewith that the interpretation of expectation values using such distribution functions as local hidden variable theory requires restrictions pertaining to the observables under study. The reasoning lead to support the view that violation of Bell's inequalities that is always possible for entangled states hinges not only on the states involved but also whether the dynamical variables have their values defined even when they cannot be measured.
