# Bohmian mechanics for a degenerate time foliation

@article{Struyve2015BohmianMF, title={Bohmian mechanics for a degenerate time foliation}, author={Ward Struyve and Roderich Tumulka}, journal={Quantum Studies: Mathematics and Foundations}, year={2015}, volume={2}, pages={349-358} }

The version of Bohmian mechanics in relativistic space–time that works best, the hypersurface Bohm–Dirac model, assumes a preferred foliation of space–time into spacelike hypersurfaces (called the time foliation) as given. We consider here a degenerate case in which, contrary to the usual definition of a foliation, several leaves of the time foliation have a region in common. That is, if we think of the time foliation as a 1-parameter family of hypersurfaces, with the hypersurfaces moving…
