The requirement of general covariance of quantum field theory (QFT) naturally leads to quantization based on the manifestly covariant De Donder–Weyl formalism. To recover the standard noncovariant
How particles can emerge in a relativistic version of Bohmian Quantum Field Theory
It is shown how bosonic material particles can emerge from a covariant formulation of de Broglie-Bohm theory. The formulation is based on the work of Nikolic. Material particles are continuous
Bohmian mechanics in relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and string theory
I present a short overview of my recent achievements on the Bohmian interpretation of relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and string theory. This includes the relativistic-covariant
The Quantum Potential in Particle and Field Theory Models
As known, the Klein-Gordon equation describe the behaviour of relativistic spinless particles.
Classical and Non-relativistic Limits of a Lorentz-Invariant Bohmian Model for a System of Spinless Particles
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
Quantum Mechanics: Myths and Facts
Abstract A common understanding of quantum mechanics (QM) among students and practical users is often plagued by a number of “myths”, that is, widely accepted claims on which there is not really a
Probabilities in deBroglie-Bohm Theory: Towards a Stochastic Alternative
We critically examine the role and status probabilities, as they enter via the Quantum Equilibrium Hypothesis, play in the standard, deterministic interpretation of deBroglie’s and Bohm’s Pilot Wave


Noncommutative quantum mechanics and Bohm's ontological interpretation
We carry out an investigation into the possibility of developing a Bohmian interpretation based on the continuous motion of point particles for noncommutative quantum mechanics. The conditions for
Constraint algebra and equations of motion in the Bohmian interpretation of quantum gravity
It is shown that introducing quantum effects using de Broglie–Bohm theory in the canonical formulation of gravity changes the constraint algebra. The new algebra is a clear projection of general
The Consistency of Causal Quantum Geometrodynamics and Quantum Field Theory
We consider quantum geometrodynamics and parametrized quantum field theories in the framework of the Bohm-de Broglie interpretation. In the first case, and following the lines of our previous work
Bohmian Particle Trajectories in Relativistic Bosonic Quantum Field Theory
We study the de Broglie–Bohm interpretation of bosonic relativistic quantum mechanics and argue that the negative densities and superluminal velocities that appear in this interpretation do not lead

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
A relativistically covariant version of Bohm's quantum field theory for the scalar field
We give a relativistically covariant, wave-functional formulation of Bohm's quantum field theory for the scalar field based on a general foliation of spacetime by space-like hypersurfaces. The wave
Generalized Tomonaga-Schwinger equation from the Hadamard formula
A generalized Tomonaga-Schwinger equation, holding on the entire boundary of a finite spacetime region, has recently been considered as a tool for studying particle scattering amplitudes in
Must quantum spacetimes be Euclidean
The Bohm\char21{}de Broglie interpretation of quantum mechanics is applied to canonical quantum cosmology. It is shown that, irrespective of any regularization or choice of factor ordering of the
