Existence of Bell-type pure jump process for the Klein-Gordon Hamiltonian

In this talk I will present my work on Bell-type jump processes. J.S. Bell in
1984 gave a jump rate formula that predict the probability of configurational
jumps and in turn define a stochastic (Markov) jump process that governs the
evolution of particle configurations. The standard method (by Tumulka et al)
for proving existence of such processes does not work for the Klein-Gordon (KG) Hamiltonian as the jump rates for it are unbounded. We show the existence
of a stationary and independent (Markov) pure jump process (i.e. where the
configurational motion occurs only via jumps) for the particle configuration that
is equivariant, i.e. |Ψt|2 distributed at every time t, where Ψ evolves with the KG
Hamiltonian, using elements from the theory of Lévy processes. Next, we also
want to extend this obtained process to a broader class of Markov process which also depend on the particle configurations and time using the general theory of Markov processes.
