Beyond Geometrical Optics and Bohmian Physics: A New Exact and Deterministic Hamiltonian Approach to WaveLike Features in Classical and Quantum Physics
Abstract
The indeterministic character of physical laws is generally considered to be the most important consequence of quantum physics. A deterministic point of view, however, together with the possibility of well defined Hamiltonian trajectories, emerges as the most natural one from the analysis of the timeindependent Helmholtzlike equations encountered both in Classical Electromagnetism and in Wave Mechanics. In the case of particle beams a suitable pattern of trajectories is provided (for any set of boundary conditions) by a set of dynamical laws containing the classical ones as a simple limiting case.
