Does the Bohm interp. rely on the Leggett-Garg inequality?

  1. Jan 12, 2009 #1
    There's considerable evidence that the Leggett-Garg inequality is violated in QM: http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/27640
    the experimenters claim that this rules out a large class of realist interpretations.
    Nonetheless, the Bohm interpretation--a hidden, realist hidden variable theory--is not part of this category, correct?
    If it's simply a reformation of the mathematics of QM, I would think that it would make exactly the same experimental predictions.

    Yes, at least for nonrelativistic QM.
