Short Retraction Notice

The paper was retracted because the author found a fundamental error in the mathematical treatment. Therefore the argument against Bohm's mechanics it not correct. In making this decision the Editorial Board follows COPE's Retraction Guidelines. Aim is to promote the circulation of scientific research by offering an ideal research publication platform with due consideration of internationally accepted standards on publication ethics. The Editorial Board would like to extend its sincere apologies for any inconvenience this retraction may have caused. Editor guiding this retraction: Prof. Yang-Hui He (EIC of JMP).

The full retraction notice in PDF is preceding the original paper, which is marked "RETRACTED".
