Quantum mechanical approaches to the virial

  title={Quantum mechanical approaches to the virial},
  author={S. Lebohec}
In this note, we approach the virial from a standard quantum mechanics point of view. Section 1 reviews the classical virial theorem. Section 2 reviews the Ehrenfest theorem as we will use it in the quantum discussion. Then the virial is considered quantum mechanically in two different ways. In section 3, the expectation values of the position and momentum observables considered independently are used to construct a " classical " virial for which we derive the virial theorem and thereby… Expand
