The article by Ciann-Dong Yang and Kuan-Chang Su on page 1253 deals with a renewed interpretation of slit experiments from the viewpoint of complex quantum trajectories. Millions of complex quantum trajectories emerging from the slits can be solved from the quantum Hamilton equations of motion and their arrivals on a screen are recorded. The statistical distribution of the computed arrivals is analyzed in light of wavefunction statistics, in the form of probability density function Ψ*Ψ. The study shows for the first time that when enough quantum trajectories are involved in the computation of statistics, Ψ*Ψ in slit experiments can be predicted by the study of the arrivals of the quantum trajectories on the screen.
