Analysis of Popper's Experiment and Its Realization

Tabish Qureshi.

in Progress of Theoretical Physics

April 2012; p ublished online April 2012 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Quantum Physics. 0 words.

Masato Fujiyoshi and Shuichi Tasaki.

in Progress of Theoretical Physics

November 2009; p ublished online November 2009 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Condensed Matter Physics; Quantum Physics; Computational Physics. 0 words.

The decay of an unstable state in the weakly coupled Friedrichs model, consisting of a discrete state and the Fibonacci lattice, is investigated numerically. The survival probability is...

Comment on the Uncertainty Relation with Periodic Boundary Conditions

Kazuo Fujikawa.

in Progress of Theoretical Physics

November 2010; p ublished online November 2010 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Quantum Physics; Mathematical and Statistical Physics; Physics. 0 words.

The Kennard-type uncertainty relation is formulated for a free particle with given momentum inside a box with periodic boundary conditions in the large box limit. Our construction of a...

Complex Spectral Representation of the Liouvillian and Kinetic Theory in Nonequilibrium Physics

Tomio Petrosky.

in Progress of Theoretical Physics

March 2010; p ublished online March 2010 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Quantum Physics; Classical Mechanics. 0 words.

Kinetic theory in nonequilibrium statistical physics is discussed in terms of the complex spectral representation of the Liouvillian for quantum systems. We show that the collision operator...
