Calculations in the Causal Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

  • Christopher Dewdney
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 162)


In this paper we present a series of computer calculations carried out in order to demonstrate exactly how the causal interpretation works in specific cases. In this way we show how the causal interpretation can account for the essential features of single and two particle non-relativistic quantum mechanics, including spin, in terms of well defined individual particle motions.
