Suppose we have a quantum mechanical system, which is well described by its wave function in r-representation $\Psi$. We are interested in the properties of an observable, say the kinetic energy $T$. ...
I'm studying the terrible subject of continuous superselection rules and I faced with the following problem. Usually (continuous or discrete) superselection rules are defined involving a direct ...
How does linearity of a measurement imply that the commutator of all measured observables are $c$-numbers?
I really don't understand with the linearity conditions I have where this comes from.
A physical quantity can be represented by the following form: $A = a_1\sigma_1 + a_2\sigma_2 + a_3\sigma_3$ where $\sigma$ matrices are Pauli matrices. Also suppose that there is $B = b_1\Sigma_1 + ...
