Experimental nonlocal and surreal Bohmian trajectories
Researchers reconstruct trajectories of two entangled photons showing the nonlocal and “surreal” nature of the trajectories in Bohmian mechanics.
Two-particle interference in standard and Bohmian quantum mechanics
The compatibility of standard and Bohmian quantum mechanics has recently been challenged in the context of two-particle interference, both from a theoretical and an experimental point of view. We
Klein paradox for bosons
Abstract We show analytically that the Zitterbewegung and Klein paradox, such well-known aspects of the Dirac equation are not found in the case of bosons. We use the Kemmer–Duffin–Chandra formalism
Relativistically invariant extension of the de Broglie–Bohm theory of quantum mechanics
We show that quantum mechanics can be given a Lorentz-invariant realistic interpretation by applying our recently proposed relativistic extension of the de Broglie–Bohm theory to deduce non-locally
Comment on 'Biphoton double-slit experiment'
In a recent paper [Phys. Rev. A 68, 033803 (2003)] experimental results on a double-slit configuration with two entangled bosons are presented. The authors argue that their data contradicts the de

In this paper we present some recent work performed at "Carlo Novero" lab on quantum information and foundations of quantum mechanics.
Numerical simulation of the double slit interference with ultracold atoms
We present a numerical simulation of the double slit interference experiment realized by F. Shimizu, K. Shimizu and H. Takuma with ultracold atoms. We show how the Feynman path integral method
Relativistically invariant Bohmian trajectories of photons
Bohmian mechanics is a nonlocal hidden-variable interpretation of quantum theory which predicts that particles follow deterministic trajectories in spacetime. Historically, the study of Bohmian
Electromagnetic energy flow lines as possible paths of photons
Motivated by recent experiments where interference patterns behind a grating are obtained by accumulating single photon events, we provide here an electromagnetic energy flow-line description to
On the Merits of the “ Unromantic Pictures ”
I am concerned with two views of quantum mechanics that John S. Bell called " unromantic " : spontaneous wave function collapse and Bohmian mechanics. I discuss some of their merits and report about


Hypersurface Bohm-Dirac models
Among the different approaches to resolving the conceptual problems of quantum theory, Bohm’s approach is perhaps the simplest.
Particle trajectories and interference in a time-dependent model of neutron single crystal interferometry
Abstract The de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics is shown to provide an explanation of the observed spatial interference in neutron single crystal interferometers in terms of

By measuring the joint probability for the detection of two photons at two points as a function of the separation between the points, we have demonstrated the existence of nonclassical effects in the
Uniqueness of paths in quantum mechanics
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
Relativistic quantum mechanics of bosons
Abstract We show that it is possible to use the Klein-Gordon, Proca and Maxwell formulations to construct multi-component relativistic configuration space wavefunctions of spin-0 and spin-1 bosons in
Relativistic quantum mechanics of spin-0 and spin-1 bosons
It is shown that below the threshold of pair creation, a consistent quantum mechanical interpretation of relativistic spin-0 and spin-1 particles (both massive and mussless) ispossible based an the

The time-dependent scattering of one-dimensional Gaussian wave packets of various energies incident on(1) a square potential barrier and(2) a square well is examined numerically, using the quantum

We show that the Tomonaga-Schwinger formalism in quantum field theory provides a manifestly Lorentz covariant description of an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) correlated state defined on a

Solutions to Maxwell's equations at a semi-infinite plane and a double slit are used to construct lines of constant amplitude, constant phase and energy flow. The lines of energy flow show how the
