2022-02-16: Is The Wave Function The Building Block of Reality?

  • 10:19: ... means that, unlike other interpretations we’ve discussed — for example, Bohmian mechanics or Many Worlds — objective collapse models can actually be tested. Some ...

2020-10-20: Is The Future Predetermined By Quantum Mechanics?

  • 11:27: ... but unfortunately, no one has convincingly figured out how to make Bohmian mechanics work properly with special ...

2016-12-08: What Happens at the Event Horizon?

  • 16:59: Something I took from this is that Bohmian mechanics is, on its own, very unlikely to be the full picture, even ignoring the whole relativity issue.
  • 17:31: More accurately, De Broglie remained convinced of the objections raised against his idea, even after some of them were addressed in Bohmian mechanics.
  • 18:34: ... inspired to return to it by Bohm's publication, even if he didn't buy Bohmian mechanics. ...

2016-11-30: Pilot Wave Theory and Quantum Realism

  • 01:30: ... theory, also known as Bohmian mechanics, stands in striking contrast to the much more mainstream ideas of, for ...
  • 06:00: The result was Bohmian mechanics, also known as de Broglie-Bohm pilot-wave theory.
  • 07:32: A more troubling requirement of Bohmian mechanics is that it does contain real complexity that is not encoded in the wave function.
  • 07:44: Bohmian mechanics has so-called hidden variables, details about the state of the particle that are not described by the wave function.
  • 08:57: This helped the resuscitation of pilot-wave theory, because Bohmian mechanics doesn't use local hidden variables-- its hidden variables are global.
  • 11:21: This is not consistent with quantum field theory, and so there isn't a complete relativistic formulation of Bohmian mechanics yet.
