I was unaware that one could obtain the Dirac equation as a result of a random walk. I believe that this has been done by other researchers, but I found it by Ord's papers:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyone else find these interesting?

My interest is due to the relationship between statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. I'd love to be able to interpret QM as a classical statistical theory for an unusual variety of space-time, as suggested by the author in the above papers.
