Beables for quantum electrodynamics

- Physics
- 2003

We show that it is possible to obtain a realistic and deterministic model, based on a previous work of John Bell, which reproduces the experimental predictions of the orthodox interpretation of…

On the Quantum Potential

- Physics
- 2004

We survey various origins and expressions for the quantum potential, expanding and extending the treatment given in a previous paper [R. Carroll, quant-ph 0401082].

Some Jump Processes in Quantum Field Theory

- Mathematics
- 2005

A jump process for the positions of interacting quantum particles on a lattice, with time-dependent transition rates governed by the state vector, was first considered by J.S. Bell. We review this…

Stochasticity and Bell-type quantum field theory

- PhilosophySynthese
- 2018

This paper critically discusses an objection proposed by Nikolić against the naturalness of the stochastic dynamics implemented by the Bell-type quantum field theory, an extension of Bohmian…

Pilot-wave approaches to quantum field theory

- Physics, Philosophy
- 2011

The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of recent work on pilot-wave approaches to quantum field theory. In such approaches, systems are not only described by their wave function, as in…

Bohmian Particle Trajectories in Relativistic Fermionic Quantum Field Theory

- Physics
- 2003

No HeadingThe de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory is generalized in such a way that it describes trajectories of relativistic fermionic particles and…

What you always wanted to know about Bohmian mechanics but were afraid to ask

- Physics
- 2006

Bohmian mechanics is an alternative interpretation of quantum mechanics. We outline the main characteristics of its non-relativistic formulation. Most notably it does provide a simple solution to the…

A minimalist pilot-wave model for quantum electrodynamics

- PhysicsProceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
- 2007

We present a way to construct a pilot-wave model for quantum electrodynamics. The idea is to introduce beables corresponding only to the bosonic and not to the fermionic degrees of freedom of the…

The dissipative approach to quantum field theory: conceptual foundations and ontological implications

- PhysicsEuropean journal for philosophy of science
- 2021

This essay introduces the dissipative approach to QFT, a new alternative formulation of the theory explaining the phenomena of particle creation and annihilation starting from nonequilibrium thermodynamics, and shows that DQFT presents a rigorous mathematical structure, and a clear particle ontology.

A Dirac sea pilot-wave model for quantum field theory

- Physics
- 2007

We present a pilot-wave model for quantum field theory in which the Dirac sea is taken seriously. The model ascribes particle trajectories to all the fermions, including the fermions filling the…

What is the meaning of the wave function

- Physics, Philosophy
- 2001

I will review the constraints that the no hidden variable theorems put on the interpretations of quantum mechanics and on the locality of the universe. I will also briefly explain how Bohm’s theory…

The Continuum limit of the Bell model

- Physics
- 2003

In a paper entitled Beables for Quantum Field Theory, John Bell has shown that it was possible to build a realistic interpretation of any hamiltonian lattice quantum field theory involving Fermi…

Objective interpretations of quantum mechanics and the possibility of a deterministic limit

- Physics
- 1987

Examines a suggestion by Bell (1984) that a deterministic model might be furnished by the continuum limit of an objective stochastic model which he has proposed for quantum field theory on a lattice.…

Uniqueness of paths in quantum mechanics

- Physics
- 1999

The constraints imposed by relativistic covariance on the law of motion of fermions in the trajectory interpretation of quantum mechanics are examined. It is found that the quantum current satisfies…

A survey of Bohmian mechanics

- Physics
- 1995

SummaryBohmian mechanics is the most naively obvious embedding imaginable of Schrödinger’s equation into a completely coherent physical theory. It describes a world in which particles move in a…
