Abstract

The interpretation of the quantum mechanics proposed by de Broglie and Bohm postulates that the time evolution of the position and the momentum of a quantum particle can be described by a trajectory in the phase-space. The evolution equation coincides with the classical one except for the presence of a nonlinear correction to the total energy of the particle denoted by Bohm potential. The particle momentum is associated to the derivative of the phase of the quantum wave function. The phase of a quantum wave function ceases to be globally well defined in the presence of zeros (nodes) and the Bohm poten tial becomes singular. We develop a geometrical interpretation of the Bohm dynamics based on the Ehresmann theory of the fiber bundles and we express the number of total rotations of the quantum phase around a node in terms of holonomy maps.
