About David Bohm "wave-pilot" concept

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Physics, Vorobevy gory, Moscow, 119992, Russian Federation

The interpretation of quantum mechanics on the basis of the so-called "wave-pilot" concept is considered from the point of view of its adequacy in the light of as realized, as possible and gedanken experiments, including with photons. It is shown that, despite its undoubted utility, it is unlikely that it can be used to match the predictions of the quantum theory with the postulate of objectively existing particle coordinates and velocities, and the splitting of the wave function into empty and non-empty wave packets seems to contradict the results of possible experiments and their interpretations.
