    Bohm Particles and Their Detection in the Light of Neutron Interferometry.H. R. Brown, C. Dewdney & G. Horton - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (2):329-347.
    Properties sometimes attributed to the “particle” aspect of a neutron, e.g., mass and magnetic moment, cannot straightforwardly be regarded in the Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics as localized at the hypothetical position of the particle. This is shown by examining a series of effects in neutron interferometry. A related thought-experiment also provides a variation of a recent demonstration that which-way detectors can appear to behave anomolously in the Bohm theory.

    Wave-Particle Dualism and the Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics.C. Dewdney, G. Horton, M. M. Lam, Z. Malik & M. Schmidt - 1992 - Foundations of Physics 22 (10):1217-1265.
    The realist interpretations of quantum theory, proposed by de Broglie and by Bohm, are re-examined and their differences, especially concerning many-particle systems and the relativistic regime, are explored. The impact of the recently proposed experiments of Vigier et al. and of Ghose et al. on the debate about the interpretation of quantum mechanics is discussed. An indication of how de Broglie and Bohm would account for these experimental results is given.

    Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Constraints on Quantum Action at a Distance: The Sutherland Paradox. [REVIEW]N. Cufaro-Petroni, C. Dewdney, P. R. Holland, A. Kyprianidis & J. P. Vigier - 1987 - Foundations of Physics 17 (8):759-773.
    Assuming that future experiments confirm Aspect's discovery of nonlocal interactions between quantum pairs of correlated particles, we analyze the constraints imposed by the EPR reasoning on the said interactions. It is then shown that the nonlocal relativistic quantum potential approach plainly satisfies the Einstein causality criteria as well as the energy-momentum conservation in individual microprocesses. Furthermore, this approach bypasses a new causal paradox for timelike separated EPR measurements deduced by Sutherland in the frame of an approach by means of space-time (...)

    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.

    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.

    De Broglie's Pilot-Wave Theory for the Klein–Gordon Equation and Its Space-Time Pathologies.George Horton, Chris Dewdney & Ulrike Ne'eman - 2002 - Foundations of Physics 32 (3):463-476.
    We illustrate, using a simple model, that in the usual formulation the time-component of the Klein–Gordon current is not generally positive definite even if one restricts allowed solutions to those with positive frequencies. Since in de Broglie's theory of particle trajectories the particle follows the current this leads to difficulties of interpretation, with the appearance of trajectories which are closed loops in space-time and velocities not limited from above. We show that at least this pathology can be avoided if one (...)

    Time-Dependent Neutron Interferometry: Evidence Against Wave Packet Collapse? [REVIEW]C. Dewdney, A. Garuccio, Ph Gueret, A. Kyprianidis & J. P. Vigier - 1985 - Foundations of Physics 15 (10):1031-1042.
    If the energy-absorbing radio-frequency spin-flipping device used in perfect crystal neutron interferometry is an intermediate measuring device, then the experimental results contradict the associated wave packet collapse and support the real existence of the de Broglie pilot waves in both arms while the neutron travels in only one.

    Nonlocally Correlated Trajectories in Two-Particle Quantum Mechanics.C. Dewdney - 1988 - Foundations of Physics 18 (9):867-886.
    In this paper we present a series of computer calculations carried out in order to demonstrate exactly how the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation works for two-particle quantum mechanics. In particular, we show how the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation can account for the essential features of nonrelativistic, two-particle quantum mechanics in terms of well-defined, correlated, individual particle trajectories and spin vectors. We demonstrate exactly how both quantum statistics and the correlations observed in Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiments can be explained in terms of nonlocal quantum potentials (...)

    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. (...)
