The Essential Quantum Mechanics
« on: February 21, 2014, 07:38:32 AM »
Just published another blog called You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. There's a lot of dry stuff - mathematical definitions, theorems, etc. - but if you are patient enough you will find it gratifying in seeing how the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle arises from that mathematical formalism, one of the greatest accomplishment of the human mind ever.

Comments will be appreciated.

Ah yes... I remember being facinated with the Dirac delta function, what a strange beast. My professor went over the same proof and said that mathematicians at the time had a hard time calling it a legitimate function. X)

In another forum, someone pointed out that I left out the evolution operator. That would have taken me into the Schroedinger picture Vs the Heisenberg picture. Though that is important, especially when going from QM to QFT, I thought it could be omitted since my goal was to reach the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle with minimum math development of the theory. But the criticism was legit.
