### Physical intuition for deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds

First of all, I know almost nothing about physics. I was reading Kontsevich´s paper on Deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds, however I could not figure out what´s the intuition for such ...

### Heisenberg picture of QM as a result of Hamilton formalism

Let's have formula of full time-derivative of physical value in Poisson's formalism: $$\tag{1} \frac{df}{dt} = -[H, f]_{P. br.} + \frac{\partial f}{\partial t},$$ where $[A, B]_{P. br.}$ is Poisson's ...

### Full time-derivative of a function and Schrodinger equation

From Hamiltonian formalism there is well known equation, $$\frac{d F}{dt} = \frac{\partial F}{\partial t} + \{F, H\}_{PB},$$ where $\{H, F\}_{PB}$ is the Poisson bracket. After using Hamiltonian ...

### The correspondence between Poisson bracket and Commutators in Quantum Mechanics

I don't understand canonical quantization. In passing from classical to quantum, one replaces the Poisson brackets with the commutators. I don't really understand this. How can we generally show that ...
In Dirac's book Principles of quantum mechanics (4th ed., pgs 87-88), he seems to give a very elementary argument as to how the commutator $[X,P]$ reduces to the Poisson brackets ${x,p}$ in the limit ...
The Poisson bracket is defined as: \{f,g\}_{PB} ~:=~ \sum_{i=1}^{N} \left[ \frac{\partial f}{\partial q_{i}} \frac{\partial g}{\partial p_{i}} - \frac{\partial f}{\partial p_{i}} \frac{\partial ...
