A footnote to Nelson's interpretation of the two-slit experiment

Michele Pavon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We seek to complement Nelson's work on the two-slit experiment by showing that the two-slit process, whose density exhibits the characteristic interference pattern, may be obtained as the model after the beam has reached the screen by means of a variational mechanism. The one-slit process, modeling the beam before it reaches the screen, plays the role of a reference model.
