# A Non-local Phase Field Model of Bohm’s Quantum Potential

@article{Mauri2021ANP, title={A Non-local Phase Field Model of Bohm’s Quantum Potential}, author={Roberto Mauri}, journal={Foundations of Physics}, year={2021}, volume={51}, pages={1-8} }

Assuming that the free energy of a gas depends non-locally on the logarithm of its mass density, the body force in the resulting equation of motion consists of the sum of density gradient terms. Truncating this series after the second term, Bohm’s quantum potential and the Madelung equation are identically obtained, showing explicitly that some of the hypotheses that led to the formulation of quantum mechanics admit a classical interpretation based on non-locality.

We show that in a dilute gas the wave function’s spreading is limited by scattering off other particles. This shows that quantum mechanics can be consistent with the kinetic theory of gases.
