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

Nonlinear Generalisation of Quantum Mechanics

A new definition for quantum-mechanical momentum is proposed which yields novel nonlinear generalisations of Schrödinger and Klein-Gordon equations. It is thence argued that the superposition and

An introduction to quantum probability , quantum mechanics , and quantum computation

Quantum mechanics is one of the most surprising sides of modern physics. Its basic precepts require only undergraduate or early graduate mathematics; but because quantum mechanics is surprising, it

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

Basics of Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics was started after works by Heisenberg (Z. Phys. 43:172, 1927), Schrodinger (Naturwissenschaften 48:52, 1935) and Dirac around 1925. Together with relativity theory it is the most
