In summary, Bohm's mechanics is a theory of quantum mechanics proposed by physicist David Bohm in the 1950s. It offers an alternative to the traditional Copenhagen interpretation and can provide a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics and its implications for reality. Recommended books for learning about Bohm's mechanics include "Quantum Theory" by David Bohm, "The Undivided Universe" by David Bohm and Basil Hiley, and "Bohmian Mechanics" by Detlef Dürr, Sheldon Goldstein, and Nino Zanghì. While a background in physics can be helpful, it is not necessary to understand Bohm's mechanics, though a basic understanding of quantum mechanics is recommended. Bohm's mechanics is not widely

Bohm's mechanics, also known as Bohmian mechanics or the de Broglie-Bohm theory, is a theoretical framework for understanding quantum mechanics. It proposes that particles have definite positions and trajectories, contrary to the probabilistic nature of standard quantum mechanics.

The key concepts of Bohm's mechanics include the existence of hidden variables, the guidance equation which determines the trajectory of a particle, and the pilot wave which influences the behavior of particles.

Some recommended books for learning Bohm's mechanics include "The Undivided Universe: An Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory" by David Bohm and Basil Hiley, "Bohmian Mechanics: The Physics and Mathematics of Quantum Theory" by Detlef Dürr, Sheldon Goldstein, and Nino Zanghì, and "Quantum Mechanics: Foundations and Applications" by Arno Bohm, Hans-Dieter Dahmen, and Wolfgang P. Schleich.

Yes, there are several online resources available for learning Bohm's mechanics, including lecture notes, video lectures, and interactive simulations. Some recommended resources include the Bohmian Mechanics website (http://www.bohmian-mechanics.net/), the Quantum Mechanics for Everyone online course (https://www.quantummechanicsforeveryone.com/), and the Bohmian Mechanics YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2V7sJPeRlOZjB8bVpXQGKg).

While a background in physics can certainly be helpful in understanding Bohm's mechanics, it is not necessary. Some introductory knowledge of quantum mechanics and mathematics may be beneficial, but there are resources available that explain the concepts in a more accessible manner. It is recommended to have a strong interest and willingness to learn about the theory in order to understand it fully.
