Examples

If you want to include the time prior to the formation of the solar system you will have to tack on a few billion years that had been quite uneventful and still rather nonrelativistic.

See p. 496, where this procedure is implemented for the case of a nonrelativistic pointlike particle.

Instead, he applies the standard quantization procedure to twistor theory, the same canonical quantization that has been previously applied to nonrelativistic particles, spin, Maxwell's electromagnetic field and strings.

Any matter (nonrelativistic) degrees of freedom, for example, would ruin reversibility, as perturbations would grow.

[Ghirardi and Grassi, 1994, 1996] it has been proved that it is impossible to build a genuinely relativistically invariant theory which, in its nonrelativistic limit, exhibits parameter dependence.

As we have mentioned, the other consistent proposal, at the nonrelativistic level, of a conceptually satisfactory solution of the macroobjectification problem is represented by the Collapse Theories which are the subject of these pages.

Rather, it governs the motion of the fundamental variables, the positions of the particles: In the Bohmian mechanical version of nonrelativistic quantum theory, quantum mechanics is fundamentally about the behavior of particles; the particles are described by their positions, and Bohmian mechanics prescribes how these change with time.

Like nonrelativistic quantum theory, of which it is a version,

This is not an objection to Bohmian mechanics but merely a recognition that quantum field theory explains a great deal more than does nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, whether in orthodox or Bohmian form.

Bohmian mechanics is the minimal completion of SchrÃ¶dinger's equation, for a nonrelativistic system of particles, to a theory describing a genuine motion of particles.
