Bohm Mechanics and Quantum Chaos

  1. Feb 5, 2013 #1
    Hello everyone,
    I would like to know if Bohm Mechanics (and weak measurement) could be useful in understanding Quantum Chaos theories?
    I'm currently in search of a PhD in Foundation of QM and I would like to know if doing a project that combine the trajectories coming from Bohm Mechanics with the current state of Quantum Chaos could be possible or desirable?
    I have just graduated from a MSc in Theoretical Physics in London and I did my project on Bohm Mechanics and Weak Measurement but I don't know much about Quantum Chaos excepted that it uses semi-classical models in order to go away with trajectories in QM (as they don't exist according to Copenhagen Interpretation).

    Do you know of any successful attempt to use theses two theories?

    Thank you Demystifier. It looks like that this area of research is not very popular... Most of the papers are from the late nineties...

    Perhaps you can make it more popular? :smile:
