Christos Dedes studied Physics at the University of Patras, Greece and continued his studies at the same University receiving an MSc in Materials Science (dissertation topic on decoherence and measurements in quantum dots). Having obtained a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarship Foundation on Optoelectronics he pursued a PhD in Quantum Optics at the University of Bradford (thesis investigated interference and correlation effects in multimode systems). Since then he has taught Physics and Mathematics at various levels both in Greece and the UK. His field of interest is mainly the foundations of both quantum and classical physics.
A non-linear backward equation with diffusive terms is postulated for the probability density that depends on the Bohmian quantum potential. An associated nonlinear Schroedinger equation is also introduced and extension of the analysis to several particle compounds is sketched along with the implications following from this formalism regarding the non-conservation of probability in the non-equilibrium regime. Some further conclusions are educed with respect to the generalized optical theorem.
