A completely Lorentz-invariant Bohmian model has been proposed recently for the case of a system of non-interacting spinless particles, obeying Klein-Gordon equations. It is based on a multi-temporal formalism and on the idea of treating the squared norm of the wave function as a space-time probability density. The particle’s configurations evolve in space-time in terms of a parameter σ with dimensions of time. In this work this model is further analyzed and extended to the case of an… 
The Dirac Equation from a Bohmian Point of View
In this paper we intend to extend some ideas of a recently proposed Lorentz-invariant Bohmian model, obeying Klein-Gordon equations, but considering particles with a spin different than zero. First
Time and probability: From classical mechanics to relativistic Bohmian mechanics
Bohmian mechanics can be generalized to a relativistic theory without preferred foliation, with a price of introducing a puzzling concept of spacetime probability conserved in a scalar time. We
Hidden Variables with Nonlocal Time
To relax the apparent tension between nonlocal hidden variables and relativity, we propose that the observable proper time is not the same quantity as the usual proper-time parameter appearing in
Causality, Nonlocality, and Entanglement in Quantum Mechanics
This chapter takes us into the domains of quantum nonlocality. The journey starts with a brief introduction to Bohm’s causal theory of quantum mechanics, which serves to further discuss the
