### Why isn't the time-derivative considered an operator in quantum mechanics? [duplicate]

Based on my understanding when doing quantum mechanics we deal with a small set of mathematical objects: namely scalars, kets, bras, and operators. But then in the Schrodinger equation we have this ...

### Is there any Hamiltonian that contains time derivative? [duplicate]

Quantum mechanics is governed by Schrodinger's equation: $$\hat{H}\psi=i\hbar\partial_t \psi$$ It seems that Hamiltonian acts on wave functions like a time derivative. Just out of curiosity, is ...

### What is $\Delta t$ in the time-energy uncertainty principle?
In non-relativistic QM, the $\Delta E$ in the time-energy uncertainty principle is the limiting standard deviation of the set of energy measurements of $n$ identically prepared systems as $n$ goes to ...
