The Schrödinger Realization of Quantum Mechanics
The realization of the basic principles of quantum mechanics by means of position wave functions is presented in Sect.4.1. This is where the time-independent Schrodinger equation is obtained, and
An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Mechanics. I. From Relativity to Dirac Equation
By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum
Quantum State Analysis : Probability theory as logic in Quantum mechanics
Quantum mechanics is basically a mathematical recipe on how to construct physical models. Historically its origin and main domain of application has been in the microscopic regime, although it stri
Classical limit of quantum mechanics
In this work we propose an alternative procedure to calculate the classical limit ( ® 0) of the quantum mechanical equations of motion. We compare our method with the Ehrenfest theorem, the WKB
A realistic interpretation for quantum mechanics
We propose a realistic and nonlocal interpretation for quantum mechanics, which requires new mathematical, physical and philosophical foundations for space-time. Our theory violates Bell's
Quantum Phenomena in Low-Dimensional Systems
A brief summary of the physics of low-dimensional quantum systems is given. The material should be accessible to advanced physics undergraduate students. References to recent review articles and
A concise introduction to quantum probability , quantum mechanics , and quantum computation
Quantum mechanics is one of the most interesting and surprising pillars of modern physics. Its basic precepts require only undergraduate or early graduate mathematics; but because quantum mechanics
The Heisenberg Realization of Quantum Mechanics
In this chapter, we present the simplest realization of the basic principles of quantum mechanics. We employ column vectors as state vectors and square matrices as operators.
