:= classical N- body conguration.
Quantization comes from requiring that the conguration of the system evolves as a Markov
diffusion (with diffusion coefcient equal to

m
) and that it makes stationary the mean classical
action
- Eulerian ( or " stochastic control" ) approach, with pre-regularization of the action : Guerra and
M., Phys. Rev. D 83.
- Lagrangian ( or "path-wise") approach, with self-regularization of the action : M. , Phys. Rev. D
85.
