Is Quantum Physics just a Brownian motion?

  1. Apr 2, 2006 #1
    Of course that,s obvious...by setting [tex] s=it [/tex] inside Schroedinguer equation you get the Heat equation..and the same for the Path Integral formulation..of course Bohm was wrong...:frown: :frown: the trajectories can,t be real anymore but complex...and the "particle" strange path and forces are due to the Electromagnetic (and perhaps gravitational) fields in the Vaccuum so the equation of motion will or should be a similar one to Langevin equation with complex time:

    [tex] m\frac{dv}{ds}=-\nabla{V}+\beta{v}+N(s) [/tex] (1)

    where beta is a constant due to friction and N is the "noise" function of the Vacccuum, of course this is an stochastic differential equation, another form of studying quantum Physics would be using Montecarlo simulation on complex plane... using this analogy we would get the probability distributions for x and p (both complex).
