A new quantization method for relativistic fields has been recently proposed. Compact time naturally reproduces canonical quantum mechanics as well as the path integral formulation, and in a deterministic way (no hidden-variables)! It seems to be a new way of thinking to the concept of time flow with interesting consequences for the problem of time symmetry. I recommend to read (and to try to figure out) about this nice idea. it represents a serious pice of work I believe! The paper has been regularly published in a conventional journal (http://www.springerlink.com/content/g324131430841515/"). Compact Time and Determinism for Bosons: foundations Donatello Dolce "Free bosonic fields are investigated at a classical level by imposing their characteristic de Broglie periodicities as constraints. In analogy with finite temperature field theory and with extra-dimensional field theories, this compactification naturally leads to a quantized energy spectrum. As a consequence of the relation between periodicity and energy arising from the de Broglie relation, the compactification must be regarded as dynamical and local. The theory, whose fundamental set-up is presented in this paper, turns out to be consistent with special relativity and in particular respects causality. The non trivial classical dynamics of these periodic fields show remarkable overlaps with ordinary quantum field theory. This can be interpreted as a generalization of the AdS/CFT correspondence." http://arxiv.org/pdf/0903.3680"
