Bohmian Mechanics was formulated in 1952 by David Bohm as a complete theory of quantum o mena based on a particle picture It was promoted some decades later by John S Bell who intrigued by the manifestly nonlocal structure of the theory was led to hie famous Bell's inequa Experimental tests of the inequalities verified that nature is indeed nonlocal Bolimian mechanics has since then prospered as the straightforward completion of quantum mechanics This book provides a systematic introduction to Bohmian mechanics and to the mathematical ctions of quantum mechanics which range from the self adjointness of the Schrödinger operator to scattering theory It explains how the quantum formalisrn emerges when Boltzmann's about statistical mechanics are applied to Bohmian mechanics The book is self contained ematically rigorous and an ideal starting point for a fundamental approach to quantum mechanics It will appeal to students and newcomers to the field as well as to established scientiste seeking a clear exposition of the theoryBohmian Mechanics was formulated in 1952 by David Bohm as a complete theory of quantum o mena based on a particle picture It was promoted some decades later by John S Bell who intrigued by the manifestly nonlocal structure of the theory was led to hie famous Bell's inequa Experimental tests of the inequalities verified that nature is indeed nonlocal Bolimian mechanics has since then prospered as the straightforward completion of quantum mechanics This book provides a systematic introduction to Bohmian mechanics and to the mathematical ctions of quantum mechanics which range from the self adjointness of the Schrödinger operator to scattering theory It explains how the quantum formalisrn emerges when Boltzmann's about statistical mechanics are applied to Bohmian mechanics The book is self contained ematically rigorous and an ideal starting point for a fundamental approach to quantum mechanics It will appeal to students and newcomers to the field as well as to established scientiste seeking a clear exposition of the theoryBohmian Mechanics was formulated in 1952 by David Bohm as a complete theory of quantum o mena based on a particle picture It was promoted some decades later by John S Bell who intrigued by the manifestly nonlocal structure of the theory was led to hie famous Bell's inequa Experimental tests of the inequalities verified that nature is indeed nonlocal Bolimian mechanics has since then prospered as the straightforward completion of quantum mechanics This book provides a systematic introduction to Bohmian mechanics and to the mathematical ctions of quantum mechanics which range from the self adjointness of the Schrödinger operator to scattering theory It explains how the quantum formalisrn emerges when Boltzmann's about statistical mechanics are applied to Bohmian mechanics The book is self contained ematically rigorous and an ideal starting point for a fundamental approach to quantum mechanics It will appeal to students and newcomers to the field as well as to established scientiste seeking a clear exposition of the theory
