A note on Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Cantorian space-time
Abstract The note derives the uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics from the intrinsically statistical geometry of a derived Cantorian space-time with a Hausdorff dimension d(u)c ≅ 4.
The fractal dimension of spacetime—remarks on theoretical derivation and experimental verification
Abstract The note discusses the relation between fractal spacetime, the geometry of four manifolds and squeezed states. Various experiments are proposed in order to determine the fractal HausdorffExpand
How to measure the fractal geometry of the relativistic fermion propagator
Abstract We study the geometry of propagation of relativistic fermions. We propose how to measure its quantum mechanical length. Numerical lattice results for the free propagator of Dirac-WilsonExpand
Proposal for an experiment to measure the Hausdorff dimensionof quantum-mechanical trajectories
We make a proposal for a Gedanken experiment, based on the Aharonov-Bohm effect, how to measure in principle the zig-zagness of the trajectory of propagation (abberation from its classicalExpand
Fractal geometry in quantum mechanics, field theory and spin systems
Abstract The goal of this article is to review the role of fractal geometry in quantum physics. There are two aspects: (a) The geometry of underlying space (space–time in relativistic systems) isExpand
The Fractal Structure of the Quantum Space-Time
We report here on the present state of an attempt at understanding micro-physics by basing ourselves on a ‘principle of scale relativity’, according to which the laws of physics should apply toExpand
Fractal quantum propagators
Quantum time‐evolution propagators are derived for a particle on a fractal lattice. It is shown that the path of such a particle represents a self‐affine fractal. A relationship is obtained betweenExpand
Some observations on quantum mechanics in disordered systems
Abstract The localization principle for vibrations on a percolation cluster and, more generally, on disordered systems leads to a modification of the Schrodinger equation by the addition of one termExpand
Scale relativity, fractal space-time and quantum mechanics
Abstract This paper describes the present state of an attempt at understanding the quantum behaviour of microphysics in terms of a nondifferentiable space-time continuum having fractal (i.e.Expand
Cantorian ε(∞) space-time, a hydrodynamical model and unified superconductivity
Abstract We prove that the fractal space-time interpretation of Nelson’s stochastic quantum mechanics may be put into a one-to-one correspondence to the hydrodynamic model of quantum mechanics. SomeExpand


Dimension of a Quantum-Mechanical Path.
We show that the observed path of a particle in quantum mechanics is a fractal curve with Hausdorff dimension two.
Hausdorff dimensions and gauge theories
Abstract Gauge theories are described as interacting random surfaces. It is conjuctured that the Hausdorff dimensions of a random surface are 4; a consequence of this hypothesis is the simplicity ofExpand
Critical Phenomena on Fractal Lattices
Renormalization-group techniques are applied to Ising-model spins placed on the sites of several self-similar fractal lattices. The resulting critical properties are shown to vary with theExpand
