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 classical mechanics. We quantize explicitly two simple classical systems: the planar mathematical pendulum and the Roessler dynamical system. 

THE GAUGE SYMMETRY OF THE THIRD KIND AND QUANTUM MECHANICS AS AN INFRARED LIMIT

We introduce functional degrees of freedom by a new gauge principle related to the phase of the wave functional. Thus, quantum mechanical systems are dissipatively embedded into a nonlinear classical

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

General linear dynamics – quantum, classical or hybrid

We describe our recent proposal of a path integral formulation of classical Hamiltonian dynamics. Which leads us here to a new attempt at hybrid dynamics, which concerns the direct coupling of

A Relativistic Gauge Theory of Nonlinear Quantum Mechanics and Newtonian Gravity

Abstract A new kind of gauge theory is introduced, where the minimal coupling and corresponding covariant derivatives are defined in the space of functions pertaining to the functional Schrödinger

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.

Quantum Fields, Cosmological Constant and Symmetry Doubling

We explore how energy-parity, a protective symmetry for the cosmological constant [Kaplan and Sundrum, 2005], arises naturally in the classical phase space dynamics of matter.We derive and generalize

Reconsidering Born's Postulate and Collapse Theory

We investigate the possibility that the amplitude of quantum wave can have a deeper physical meaning other than the probabilistic interpretation base on Born’s postulate. We find that the

Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics

We present the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics and demonstrate its equivalence to the Schrödinger picture. We apply the method to the free particle and quantum harmonic oscillator,

A NOVEL APPROACH TO NONCOMMUTATIVITY IN PLANAR QUANTUM MECHANICS

Noncommutative algebra in planar quantum mechanics is shown to follow from 't Hooft's recent analysis on dissipation and quantization. The noncommutativity in the coordinates or in the momenta of a

Quantization of the relativistic particle

We revise the problem of quantizing the relativistic particle. We present the modified canonical scheme, which allows us to construct the consistent relativistic quantum mechanics as well as to

Abstract We derive the exact action for a damped mechanical system (and the special case of the linear oscillator) from the path integral formulation of the quantum Brownian motion problem developed
