Bohmian trajectories for photons
Abstract The first examples of Bohmian trajectories for photons have been worked out for simple situations, using the Kemmer–Duffin–Harish-Chandra formalism.
The Einstein–Infeld–Hoffmann legacy in mathematical relativity II. Quantum laws of motion for singularities of spacetime
We report on recent developments toward a relativistic quantum-mechanical theory of motion for a fixed, finite number of electrons, photons and their anti-particles, as well as its possible
Quantum Spacetime without Observers: Ontological Clarity and the Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Gravity ∗
The term “3-geometry” makes sense as well in quantum geometrodynamics as in classical theory. So does superspace. But space-time does not. Give a 3-geometry, and give its time rate of change.
Bohmian Mechanics
Bohmian mechanics is a quantum theory with a clear ontology and the status and the role of of the quantum formalism is clarified.
What Is Bohmian Mechanics
Bohmian mechanics is a quantum theory with a clear ontology. To make clear what we mean by this, we shall proceed by recalling first what are the problems of quantum mechanics. We shall then briefly
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
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
What is the meaning of the wave function
I will review the constraints that the no hidden variable theorems put on the interpretations of quantum mechanics and on the locality of the universe. I will also briefly explain how Bohm’s theory

The status and significance of multi-time equations, which are evolution equations involving several time variables, one for each particle, in classical and quantum physics are compared.
On some early objections to Bohm's theory
Recent literature on Bohm's alternative to mainstream quantum mechanics may create the misleading impression that, except for perfunctory dismissals, the theory was ignored by the physics community


A stochastic model of a quantum field theory
The problem of obtaining a realistic relativistic description of a quantum system is discussed in the context of a simple (light-cone) lattice field theory. A natural stochastic model is proposed
Book-Review - the Undivided Universe - an Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory
In the The Undivided Universe, David Bohn and Basil Hiley present a radically different approach to quantum theory. They develop an interpretation of quantum mechanics which gives a clear, intuitive
Quantum equilibrium and the origin of absolute uncertainty
The quantum formalism is a “measurement” formalism-a phenomenological formalism describing certain macroscopic regularities. We argue that it can be regarded, and best be understood, as arising from

Space-Time in the Quantum World
Consider pairs of electrons produced in the singlet state and allowed to separate to a very great distance. We know from the work of Bell that no theory can predict violations of Bell’s inequality
