Bohm’s Interpretation of Quantum Field Theory

  • C. Dewdney


In this contribution we review some calculations in Bohm’s approach to quantum theory. In particular, we discuss the interaction of a quantized cavity scalar field with firstly one and then two particles confined in infinite potential wells.
