A membrane is essentially analogous to 'spacetime' in our reality.
nonlocality, the mysterious ability of Nature to enforce correlations between separated but entangled parts of a quantum system that are out of speed-of-light contact, to reach faster-than-light across vast spatial distances or even across time itself to ensure that the parts of a quantum system are made to match. To be more specific, locality means that isolated parts of any quantum mechanical system out of speed-of-light contact with other parts of that system are allowed to retain definite relationships or correlations only through memory of previous contact. Nonlocality means that in quantum systems correlations not possible through simple memory are somehow being enforced faster-than-light across space and time. Nonlocality, peculiar though it is, is a fact of quantum systems which has been repeatedly demonstrated in laboratory experiments.
a technical term meaning that when quantum waves are superimposed they may generate a small cross-term not present in the standard formalism.

Awww, linear algebra isn't fun? Come on now...you know you love it.
Most of the time math depends on your textbook and professor.
3. That could be a loophole, bending space. It's not travelling any faster, but since you're not going as far as you might have had to, you could make the case, but you'd probably lose. Also, space can move however fast it wants. It's moving through space that has limits. Sometimes things seem to be faster than light because space has expanded while the light has traveled.
