The De Broglie–Bohm (DBB) interpretation conjunctures that:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) the wavefunction travels through both slits, but each particle has a well-defined trajectory and passes through exactly one of the slits

b) there is a pilot wave

Now, one can guess/understand why it needs to assume a) above.

However, what observation/phenomena, in a single particle interference experiments, induces the DBB to assume a pilot wave in addition to (a) above?
