This chapter discusses the result which has come to be known as ‘Bell’s Theorem’ but which Bell himself instead referred to as the ‘locality inequality theorem’.
Quantum equilibrium and the origin of absolute uncertainty
The quantum formalism is a “measurement” formalism-a phenomenological formalism describing certain macroscopic regularities. We argue that it can be regarded, and best be understood, as arising from…

Bohmian mechanics and the Ghirardi–Rimini–Weber theory provide opposite resolutions of the quantum measurement problem: the former postulates additional variables (the particle positions) besides the…
Boltzmann's Approach to Statistical Mechanics

In the last quarter of the nineteenth century, Ludwig Boltzmann explained how irreversible macroscopic laws, in particular the second law of thermodynamics, originate in the time-reversible laws of…
Quantum physics without quantum philosophy
What Is Bohmian Mechanics
Bohmian mechanics is a quantum theory with a clear ontology and the status and the role of of the quantum formalism is clarified.

Hypersurface Bohm-Dirac models
Among the different approaches to resolving the conceptual problems of quantum theory, Bohm’s approach is perhaps the simplest.
