A model for the stochastic origins of Schrodinger's equation

Preprint English OPEN
Davidson, Mark P. (2001)
  • Subject: Quantum Physics

A model for the motion of a charged particle in the vacuum is presented which, although purely classical in concept, yields Schrodinger's equation as a solution. It suggests that the origins of the peculiar and nonclassical features of quantum mechanics are actually inherent in a statistical description of the radiative reactive force.
