The papers and book chapters listed here provide a clear and well documented history on the origin of the equation for the probability amplitude of quantum entanglement. Furthermore, a transparent and cohesive derivation of this probability amplitude based entirely on *N*-slit interferometric principles, and the use of Dirac's identities, is given.
