Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 1966. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE INTRODUCTION OF STOCHASTIC MECHANICS, an interpretation of quantum mechanics aims to derive the wave function and the Schrödinger equation from natural conditions on a diffusion process in configuration space. It is an interpretation of non-relativistic quantum mechanics in which the trajectories of the configuration are regarded as physically real.
“The modern application of stochastics to quantum mechanics involves the assumption of spacetime stochasticity, the idea that the small-scale structure of spacetime is undergoing both metric and topological fluctuations, and that the averaged result of these fluctuations recreates a more conventional-looking metric at larger scales that can be described using classical physics, along with an element of non-locality that can be described using quantum mechanics” (Wikipedia).
