Quantum corrections to classical trajectories

A consistent formalism with quantum mechanics, different from Bohmian mechanics, which describes the quantum corrections to classical trajectories, is developed. The quantum potential of Bohmian mechanics is part of the kinetic energy in our formalism. The difficulties of the formalism of Bohmian mechanics are pointed out. Our formalism is similar to the one used successfully by Ehrenfest.
