Abstract

This paper continues an earlier work by considering in what sense and to what extent identical Bohmian-mechanical particles in many-particle systems can be considered indistinguishable. We conclude that while whether identical Bohmianmechanical particles ace considered to be ``statistically (in)distinguishable'' is a matter of theory choice underdetermined by logic and experiment, such particles are in any case ``physically distinguishable.''
