Quantum backflow effect and nonclassicality

The quantum backflow effect is a counterintuitive behavior of the probability current of a free particle, which may be negative even for states with vanishing negative momentum component. Here, we

Quantum backflow in solutions to the Dirac equation of the spin-1 2 free particle

It was known that a free, non-relativistic particle in a superposition of positive momenta can, in certain cases, bear a negative probability current — hence termed quantum backflow. Here, it is

On the experiment-friendly formulation of quantum backflow

In its standard formulation, quantum backflow is a classically impossible phenomenon in which a free quantum particle in a positive-momentum state exhibits a negative probability current. Recently,

Probability backflow for correlated quantum states

In its original formulation, quantum backflow (QB) is an interference effect that manifests itself as a negative probability transfer for free-particle states comprised of plane waves with only

Analytical examples, measurement models, and classical limit of quantum backflow

We investigate the backflow effect in elementary quantum mechanics - the phenomenon in which a state consisting entirely of positive momenta may have negative current and the probability flows in the

Angular momentum quantum backflow in the noncommutative plane

We study the quantum backflow problem in the noncommutative plane. In particular, we have considered a charged particle with and without an oscillator interaction with noncommuting momentum operators

Dissipative quantum backflow

Dissipative backflow is studied in the context of open quantum systems. This theoretical analysis is carried out within two frameworks, the effective time-dependent Hamiltonian due to Caldirola–Kanai

A new approach to quantum backflow

We derive some rigorous results concerning the backflow operator introduced by Bracken and Melloy. We show that it is linear bounded, self-adjoint and non-compact. Thus the question is underlined

Relativistic quantum backflow

In this paper we discuss relativistic quantum backflow. The general theory of relativistic backflow is presented and it is shown that the backflow can be written as a function of a simple parameter

Experiment-friendly formulation of quantum backflow

The amount of quantum backflow for arbitrary momentum distributions is quantified, paving the way towards its experimental verification.
