On Schrodinger Equation

Friday, April 17, 2015, 3:30pm
Ungar Building Room 402


We will talk about the derivation of the Schrodinger equation, time dependent and independent, using an analogy to classical mechanics based on Feynman's reading of Dirac's work. The concept of observables, common to classical and quantum mechanics, will be described briefly and allow us to derive Heisenberg's uncertainty principle from the relation of the observables of position and momentum. In order to illustrate the subject two examples will be shown: free-particle, and the harmonic oscillator in the classical and quantum case..
