abstract

It is shown that quantum mechanics can be presented as a hydrodynamic of some quantum fluid. In this case the quantum mechanics ceases to be an axiomatic conception, because the axiomatic object of QM (wave function) ceases to be an axiomatic object. In the hydrodynamics the wave function is a method of an ideal fluid description. The quantum mechanics becomes to be a classical dynamics of the stochastic particles. Problems of the quantum mechanics interpretation disappear, because the interpretation is determined by the mathematical formalism of classical dynamics.
