On David Bohm's 'pilot-wave' concept


Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Physics, Leninskie Gory 1 build. 2, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

Adequacy of interpretation of quantum mechanics on the basis of the so-called 'pilot-wave' concept is considered from the perspective of both already realized and possible and gedanken experiments, including those that involve photons. It is shown that this concept, despite undoubtedly being useful, can hardly ensure compliance of quantum-theory predictions with the postulate that particle coordinates and velocities objectively exist, while splitting of the wave function into empty and nonempty wave packets seems to be in contradistinction with the results of feasible experiments and their interpretations.

Keywords: orthodox interpretation, hidden variables, determinism, quantum superposition, quantum statistics
