This paper is motivated by the desire to formulate a relativistically covariant hidden-variable particle trajectory interpretation of the quantum theory of the vector field that is formulated in such a way as to allow the inclusion of gravity. We present a methodology for calculating the flows of rest energy and a conserved density for the massive vector field using the time-like eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the stress-energy-momentum tensor. Such flows may be used to define particle…

Relativistic De Broglie matter wave contains SU(n) symmetry
We show that the relativistic matter waves of two particle system contains the SU(2) symmetry; the relativistic matter waves of three particle system contains the SU(3) symmetry. Therefore, the

A relativistically covariant version of Bohm's quantum field theory for the scalar field
We give a relativistically covariant, wave-functional formulation of Bohm's quantum field theory for the scalar field based on a general foliation of spacetime by space-like hypersurfaces. The wave
A non-local, Lorentz-invariant, hidden-variable interpretation of relativistic quantum mechanics based on particle trajectories
We demonstrate how to construct a Lorentz-invariant, hidden-variable interpretation of relativistic quantum mechanics based on particle trajectories. The covariant theory that we propose employs a
Time-like flows of energy momentum and particle trajectories for the Klein-Gordon equation
The Klein-Gordon equation is interpreted in the de Broglie-Bohm manner as a single-particle relativistic quantum mechanical equation that defines unique time-like particle trajectories. The particle
On the foundations of relativistic energy mechanics
SummaryThe Einstein theory of general relativity is shown to yield a general mechanics of continuous media under the assumption that the momentum-energy tensor admits a unique timelike eigenvector.
Quantum fields in curved spacetime
For the O(N) field theory with λΦ4 self-coupling, we construct the twoparticle-irreducible (2PI), closed-time-path (CTP) effective action in a general curved spacetime. From this we derive a set of
Classical physics as geometry
If classical physics be regarded as comprising gravitation, source free electromagnetism, unquantized charge, and unquantized mass of concentrations of electromagnetic field energy (geons), then
de Broglie's Pilot-Wave Theory for the Klein–Gordon Equation and Its Space-Time Pathologies
We illustrate, using a simple model, that in the usual formulation the time-component of the Klein–Gordon current is not generally positive definite even if one restricts allowed solutions to those
