Particle Trajectories and Quantum Correlations
In this paper we present a series of computer calculations carried out in order to demonstrate exactly how the causal interpretation works for two-particle quantum mechanics. In particular we show how the causal interpretation can account for the essential features of nonrelativistic, two-particle quantum mechanics in terms of well-defined, correlated, individual particle trajectories and spin vectors. We demonstrate exactly how both quantum statistics and the correlations observed in Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) experiments can be explained in terms of nonlocal quantum potentials and nonlocal quantum torques which act on the well-defined individual particle coordinates and spin vectors.
