# Bohmian Trajectories for Kerr–Newman Particles in Complex Space-Time

@article{Davidson2018BohmianTF, title={Bohmian Trajectories for Kerr–Newman Particles in Complex Space-Time}, author={Mark P. Davidson}, journal={Foundations of Physics}, year={2018}, volume={48}, pages={1590-1616} }

Complexified Liénard–Wiechert potentials simplify the mathematics of Kerr–Newman particles. Here we constrain them by fiat to move along Bohmian trajectories to see if anything interesting occurs, as their equations of motion are not known. A covariant theory due to Stueckelberg is used. This paper deviates from the traditional Bohmian interpretation of quantum mechanics since the electromagnetic interactions of Kerr–Newman particles are dictated by general relativity. A Gaussian wave function…
