The similarity between classical and quantum physics is large enough to make an investigation of quantization methods a worthwhile endeavour. As history has shown, Dirac's canonical quantization method works reasonably well in the case of conventional quantum mechanics over $\mathbb{R}^n$ but it may fail in non-trivial phase spaces and also suffer from ordering problem. Affine quantization is an alternative method, similar to the canonical quantization, that may offer a positive result in…

We study canonical and affine versions of the quantized covariant Euclidean free real scalar field-theory on four dimensional lattices through the Monte Carlo method. We calculate the two-point
A Straight Forward Path to a Path Integration of Einstein's Gravity
Path integration is a respected form of quantization that all the-oretical quantum physicists should welcome. This elaboration begins with simple examples of three diﬀerent versions of path

Affine quantization is a parallel procedure to canonical quantization, which is ideally suited to deal with special problems. Vector affine quantization introduces multiple degrees of freedom which
The Particle in a Box \Warrants an Examination
The particle in a box is a simple model that has a classical Hamiltonian H = p 2 (using 2 m = 1), with a limited coordinate space, − b < q < b , where 0 < b < ∞ . Using canonical quantization, this

Canonical quantization (CQ) is built around [Q,P ] = ih̄1 , while affine quantization (AQ) is built around [Q,D] = ih̄ Q, where D ≡ (PQ + QP )/2. The basic CQ operators must fit −∞ < P,Q < ∞, while
A Smooth Path between the Classical Realm and the Quantum Realm
This paper leads the reader toward specific, but natural, procedures that promise to ensure that the classical and quantum choices are guaranteed a proper physical connection.

For a particle moving on a half-line or in an interval the operator p̂ = −i∂x is not self-adjoint and thus does not qualify as the physical momentum. Consequently canonical quantization based on p̂
