We introduce a general and systematic theoretical framework for operational dynamic modeling (ODM) by combining a kinematic description of a model with the evolution of the dynamical average values. The kinematics includes the algebra of the observables and their defined averages. The evolution of the average values is drawn in the form of Ehrenfest-like theorems. We show that ODM is capable of encompassing wide-ranging dynamics from classical non-relativistic mechanics to quantum field theory…

Operational dynamical modeling of spin 1/2 relativistic particles

The formalism of Operational Dynamical Modeling [Bondar et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 190403 (2012)] is employed to analyze dynamics of spin half relativistic particles. We arrive at the Dirac

Quantum and semiclassical dynamics as fluid theories where gauge matters

The family of trajectories-based approximations employed in computational quantum physics and chemistry is very diverse. For instance, Bohmian and Heller's frozen Gaussian semiclassical trajectories

Classical Propagation in the Quantum Inverted Oscillator

We emphasize the fact the evolution of quantum states in the inverted oscillator (IO) is reduced to classical equations of motion, stressing that the corresponding tunnelling and reflexion

Joint quantum–classical Hamilton variational principle in the phase space

We show that the dynamics of a closed quantum system obeys the Hamilton variational principle. Even though quantum particles lack well-defined trajectories, their evolution in the Husimi

Quantum corrections to classical trajectories

A consistent formalism with quantum mechanics, different from Bohmian mechanics, which describes the quantum corrections to classical trajectories, is developed. The quantum potential of Bohmian

Quantization of Nambu Brackets from Operator Formalism in Classical Mechanics

The quantization of Nambu brackets is formulated using the approach of quantum mechanical formulation of classical mechanics. It is shown that the quantum-momentum operator is defined by the

Motion in Quantum-Classical Transition via ODM GAO Wei-chen Abstract: In this paper, we firstly re-present the results of Bondar et al. (2013). Then, following the approach taken in it, we use the

Koopman wavefunctions and classical states in hybrid quantum–classical dynamics

We deal with the reversible dynamics of coupled quantum and classical systems. Based on a recent proposal by the authors, we exploit the theory of hybrid quantum–classical wavefunctions to devise a



Universal local symmetries and nonsuperposition in classical mechanics.

It is shown that actually many of those extra observables in the Hilbert space formulation of classical mechanics are not invariant under a set of universal local symmetries which appear once the Koopman and von Neumann formulation is extended to include the evolution of differential forms.

Born rule in quantum and classical mechanics

Considerable effort has been devoted to deriving the Born rule [i.e., that {psi}(x){sup 2}dx is the probability of finding a system, described by {psi}, between x and x+dx] in quantum mechanics. Here

Path-integral approach to 't Hooft's derivation of quantum physics from classical physics

We present a path-integral formulation of 't Hooft's derivation of quantum physics from classical physics. The crucial ingredient of this formulation is Gozzi et al.'s supersymmetric path integral of

Mixed quantum-classical dynamics

Mixed quantum-classical equations of motion are derived for a quantum subsystem of light (mass m) particles coupled to a classical bath of massive (mass M) particles. The equation of motion follows

We prove quantum-classical correspondence for bound conservative classically chaotic Hamiltonian systems. In particular, quantum Liouville spectral projection operators and spectral densities, and

The probability of a configuration is given in classical theory by the Boltzmann formula exp [— V/hT] where V is the potential energy of this configuration. For high temperatures this of course also

A new method of solving classical and quantum problems of statistical data analysis based on the symbiosis of notions of quantum theory and mathematical statistics is considered. Particular attention

Hidden BRS invariance in classical mechanics. II.

An interpretation for the ghost fields as being the well-known Jacobi fields of classical mechanics is provided, and the Hamiltonian {ital {tilde H}}, derived from the action {ital{tilde S}}, turns out to be the Lie derivative associated with theHamiltonian flow.
