Bohmian Mechanics. Pilot-wave theory

Recommended Posts

David Harriman mentioned pilot-wave theory in his series "Philosophic Corruption of Physics"

For those who are interested in a conceptual look at how the randomness of quantum mechanics could be explained causally:

It's a very positive sign to see mainstream science considering causality as viable again.

This is my favourite theory of quantum mechanics for the simple reason that in my mind it's the ONLY theory of quantum mechanics.

It's probably no deep philosophical shift, but I guess that after half a century of non-theories, physicists are getting bored enough to try something else.

Bohm's  version of quantum theory makes the same predictions as does  Bohr's version.  Neither are quite correct. One must incorporate relativity to get the best predictions.  For that we have quantum field theory.
