Classical and Quantum Mechanics via Supermetrics in Time

Koopman-von Neumann in the 30’s gave an operatorial formulation of Classical Mechanics. It was shown later on that this formulation could also be written in a path-integral form. We will label this

Variational approach to dequantization

We present a dequantization procedure based on a variational approach whereby quantum fluctuations latent in the quantum momentum are suppressed. This is done by adding generic local deformations to

Path Integrals for (Complex) Classical and Quantum Mechanics

An analysis of classical mechanics in a complex extension of phase space shows that a particle in such a space can behave in a way redolant of quantum mechanics; additional degrees of freedom permit

From Koopman–von Neumann theory to quantum theory

Koopman and von Neumann (KvN) extended the Liouville equation by introducing a phase space function $$S^{(K)}(q,p,t)$$S(K)(q,p,t) whose physical meaning is unknown. We show that a different S(q, p,

Hilbert space theory of classical electrodynamics

Classical electrodynamics is reformulated in terms of wave functions in the classical phase space of electrodynamics, following the Koopman–von Neumann–Sudarshan prescription for classical mechanics

Geometric Dequantization of Spin

In this Letter we propose two path integral approaches to describe the classical mechanics of spinning particles. We show how these formulations can be derived from the associated quantum ones via a

Operational dynamic modeling transcending quantum and classical mechanics.

It is shown that ODM is capable of encompassing wide-ranging dynamics from classical non-relativistic mechanics to quantum field theory, and should provide a basis for formulating novel theories.

Projective representation of the Galilei group for classical and quantum–classical systems

A physically relevant unitary irreducible non-projective representation of the Galilei group is possible in the Koopman–von Neumann formulation of classical mechanics. This classical representation



Introduction to Supersymmetry and Supergravity

Over the past years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in “public interest” in supersymmetry and super gravity. This interest cannot as yet be based on any solid experimental facts, but it has

Quantum theory of many-variable systems and fields

These lecture notes are based on special courses on Field Theory and Statistical Mechanics given for graduate students at the City College of New York. It is an ideal text for a one-semester course
