  1. Lorentz-Invariant, Retrocausal, and Deterministic Hidden Variables.Aurélien Drezet - 2019 - Foundations of Physics 49 (10):1166-1199.
    We review several no-go theorems attributed to Gisin and Hardy, Conway and Kochen purporting the impossibility of Lorentz-invariant deterministic hidden-variable model for explaining quantum nonlocality. Those theorems claim that the only known solution to escape the conclusions is either to accept a preferred reference frame or to abandon the hidden-variable program altogether. Here we present a different alternative based on a foliation dependent framework adapted to deterministic hidden variables. We analyse the impact of such an approach on Bohmian mechanics and (...)

  • A Relativistic Hidden-Variable Interpretation for the Massive Vector Field Based on Energy-Momentum Flows.George Horton & Chris Dewdney - 2010 - Foundations of Physics 40 (6):658-678.
    This paper is motivated by the desire to formulate a relativistically covariant hidden-variable particle trajectory interpretation of the quantum theory of the vector field that is formulated in such a way as to allow the inclusion of gravity. We present a methodology for calculating the flows of rest energy and a conserved density for the massive vector field using the time-like eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the stress-energy-momentum tensor. Such flows may be used to define particle trajectories which follow the flow. (...)

  • Decoherence in Unorthodox Formulations of Quantum Mechanics.Vassilios Karakostas & Michael Dickson - 1995 - Synthese 102 (1):61 - 97.
    The conceptual structure of orthodox quantum mechanics has not provided a fully satisfactory and coherent description of natural phenomena. With particular attention to the measurement problem, we review and investigate two unorthodox formulations. First, there is the model advanced by GRWP, a stochastic modification of the standard Schrödinger dynamics admitting statevector reduction as a real physical process. Second, there is the ontological interpretation of Bohm, a causal reformulation of the usual theory admitting no collapse of the statevector. Within these two (...)

  • The Bohm Approach to Cavity Quantum Scalar Field Dynamics. Part II: The Interaction of the Field with Matter. [REVIEW]M. M. Lam & C. Dewdney - 1994 - Foundations of Physics 24 (1):29-60.
    The deterministic process of the detection of a single quantum of energy in Bohm's approach to quantum field theory is illustrated using the Jaynes-Cummings model with a scalar field. The nonlocality of differing quantum states of the scalar field is also explored, and this description is compared with the causal picture of an unquantized field acting on the detector.

  • The Two-Prism Experiment and Wave-Particle Duality of Light.Partha Ghose & Dipankar Home - 1996 - Foundations of Physics 26 (7):943-953.
    A number of papers on wave-particle duality has appeared since the two-prism experiment was performed by Mizobuchi and Ohtake, based on a suggestion by Ghose, Home, and Agarwal. Against this backdrop, the present paper provides further clarification of the key issues involved in the analysis of the two-prism experiment. In the process, we present an overview of wave-particle duality vis-a vis Bohr's complementarity principle.

  • Unremarkable Contextualism: Dispositions in the Bohm Theory. [REVIEW]Constantine Pagonis & Rob Clifton - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (2):281-296.
    One way to characterize dispositions is to take them to be reducible to categorical properties plus experimental arrangements. We argue that this view applied to Bohm 's ontological interpretation of quantum theory provides a good picture of the unremarkable nature of spin in that interpretation, and so explains how a simple realism of possessed values may be retained in the face of Kochen and Specker's theorem. With this in mind we discuss Redhead's influential analysis of Kochen and Specker's theorem which (...)

  • The Bohm Approach to Cavity Quantum Scalar Field Dynamics. Part I: The Free Field. [REVIEW]M. M. Lam & C. Dewdney - 1994 - Foundations of Physics 24 (1):3-27.
    Bohm 's approach to quantum field theory is illustrated through its application to cavity quantum scalar field dynamics. Specific calculations demonstrate how the evolution of the well-defined scalar field is governed by the nature of its quantum state. The implications of the nonlocality inherent in quantum mechanics and the meaning of the classical limit are discussed in this context.

  • Quantum Tunneling Times: A Crucial Test for the Causal Program? [REVIEW]James T. Cushing - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (2):269-280.
    It is generally believed that Bohm's version of quantum mechanics is observationally equivalent to standard quantum mechanics. A more careful statement is that the two theories will always make the same predictions for any question or problem that is well posed in both interpretations. The transit time of a “particle” between two points in space is not necessarily well defined in standard quantum mechanics, whereas it is in Bohm's theory since there is always a particle following a definite trajectory. For (...)
