This book presents the first comprehensive exposition of the interpretation of quantum mechanics pioneered by Louis de Broglie and David Bohm. The purpose is to explain how quantum processes may be visualized without ambiguity or confusion in terms of a simple physical model. Dr. Holland develops the idea that a material system such as an electron is a particle guided by a surrounding quantum wave. He examines the classic phenomena of quantum theory in order to show how the spacetime orbits of an ensemble of particles can reproduce the statistical quantum predictions. The book will therefore appeal to all physicists with an interest in the foundations of their discipline.

"...a tour de force...clear and thoughtful presentation of a theory deserving much wider attention." Constantine Pagonis, Nature
"...the wealth of details and literature citations make this a valuable reference work with which anyone with a serious interest in foundations of quantum mechanics should become familiar....refreshingly open-minded." Sheldon Goldstein, Science
"...provides an excellent presentation of the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation (to date, the only one available). This area is important because experiments are now becoming possible that may resolve some the fundamental disputes." C.A. Hein, Choice
"...the first comprehensive mongraph devoted to the deBroglie-Bohm Interpretation of Quantum Mmechanics...a good reference for those who believe in hidden variable theories...aslo useful for those who oppose them...well-written and nicely printed...presented at a level accessible to the B.Sc. graduate. Definitely it should be in every university library..." Hua Wu, la Physique au Canada
"...an easy to read, beautifully written account of the theory to date...a graceful, insightful reference book or even textbook of the Bohm theory...I not only recommend that you put this book on your bookshelf, but also that you get in the habit of looking at it." Daniel Greenberger, Foundations of Physics
