Abstract: We present a computer simulation model of Wheeler-s delayed choice experimentthat is a one-to-one copy of an experiment reported recently V. Jacques {\slet al.}, Science 315, 966 2007. The model is solely based on experimentalfacts, satisfies Einstein-s criterion of local causality and does not rely onany concept of quantum theory. Nevertheless, the simulation model reproducesthe averages as obtained from the quantum theoretical description of Wheeler-sdelayed choice experiment. Our results prove that it is possible to give aparticle-only description of Wheeler-s delayed choice experiment whichreproduces the averages calculated from quantum theory and which does not defycommon sense.
