In science:

Recently, Refael et Moore have used the particular properties at the IRFP of these models to compute the entanglement of a block of spins of the corresponding chain.
Increasing of entanglement entropy from pure to random quantum critical chains
These assumptions are blocked by Moore’s theorem regardless of whether the “system” referred to is macroscopic or microscopic, observed directly or observed through the use of an apparatus.
Bell's Theorem from Moore's Theorem
The paper then shows that the inferences from observational outcomes that are blocked by the well-known “no-go” theorems of Wooters and Zurek , Kochen and Specker and Bell are instances of inferences that are blocked by Moore’s theorem.
Bell's Theorem from Moore's Theorem
It is important to emphasize that Moore’s theorem in no way blocks either the construction of theoretical models of the behavior of a system that assume that the system has the degrees of freedom that experimental observations indicate, or the design of further experimental manipulations based on such models.
Bell's Theorem from Moore's Theorem
Moore’s theorem clearly blocks the inference that any sequence of classicallyrecorded observational outcomes obtained from any state |ψi are sufficient to demonstrate that |ψi is a faithful copy of any other quantum state, whether the other, “original” state has been observed or merely described theoretically.
