# A Physical Axiomatic Approach to Schrodinger's Equation

@article{Parwani2005APA, title={A Physical Axiomatic Approach to Schrodinger's Equation}, author={Rajesh R. Parwani}, journal={International Journal of Theoretical Physics}, year={2005}, volume={45}, pages={1901-1913} }

The Schrodinger equation for non-relativistic quantum systems is derived from some classical physics axioms within an ensemble hamiltonian framework. Such an approach enables one to understand the structure of the equation, in particular its linearity, in intuitive terms. Furthermore it allows for a physically motivated and systematic investigation of potential generalisations which are briefly discussed.
