We outline an introduction to quantum mechanics based on the sum-over-paths method originated by Richard P. Feynman. Students use software with a graphics interface to model sums associated with multiple paths for photons and electrons, leading to the concepts of electron wavefunction, the propagator, bound states, and stationary states.

In this paper the Regge pole model is applied to K*(890) photoproduction. Conspiracy relations, kinematic constraints, factorization, and the question of when to set m y = 0 are discussed. Predictions are obtained, in the limit of large s and small t, for ?a , the density matrix, and the K* decay angular distribution. (To be submitted to Physical Review) *(More)
