Abstract

A setup that entails nonuniqueness in the quantum prediction of the arrival/transit time distribution is analysed using the Bohmian model, implying the plausibility of two distinct calculational schemes having empirically distinguishable predictions. One of them agrees with the results obtained from the probability current density based approach that has been suggested for predicting the quantum arrival/transit time distribution.
