Most textbooks explain quantum mechanics as a story where each step follows naturally from the one preceding it. However, the development of quantum mechanics was exactly the opposite. It was a zigzagging route full of personal disputes where scientists were forced to abandon well-established classical concepts and to explore new and imaginative routes. This book demonstrates the huge practical utility of another of these routes in explaining quantum phenomena in various research fields. Bohmian mechanics-the formulation of the quantum theory pioneered by Louis de Broglie and David Bohm-offers an alternative mathematical formulation of quantum phenomena in terms of quantum trajectories. It sheds light on the limits and extensions of our present understanding of quantum mechanics toward other paradigms, such as relativity or cosmology.

Xavier Oriols received his degree in Physics and Ph.D. in electronic engineering on the study of resonant tunneling diodes with Bohmian trajectories, both from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain, in 1993 and 1999, respectively. He also worked at the Institut d'Electronique, de Microelectronique, et de Nanotechnologie, France, and at the Physics Department of the State University of New York. He is currently an associate professor at the Electronic Engineering Department at the UAB. His present research interests include the study of correlations in many-particle systems and the development of a general, versatile, and user-friendly quantum electron transport simulator, named BITLLES, based on Bohmian mechanics. He is author and coauthor of more than 120 papers in international journals and conference proceedings. Jordi Mompart received his Ph.D. in physics from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain, in 1999 on the lasing without inversion topic. He has been visiting researcher at various foreign universities, including the Texas A&M University, Texas; Universitat Munster, Munster, Germany; and the Universita degli Studi di Milano, Milano, Italy. After a postdoctoral stay at the Leibniz Universitat Hannover, Germany, working on the use of cold atoms for quantum information purposes, he became associate professor at the UAB. His research interests range from laser physics and quantum optics to cold atoms and quantum information. Mompart has authored over 50 papers in international journals.
