Pastorello, Davide (2014) Geometric Hamiltonian Formulation of Quantum Mechanics. PhD thesis, University of Trento.
|PDF - Doctoral Thesis|
My PhD thesis is focused on geometric Hamiltonian formulation of Quanum Mechanics and its interplay with standard formulation. The main result is the construction of a general prescription to set up a quantum theory as a classical-like theory where quantum dynamics is given by a Hamiltonian vector field on a complex projective space with Kähler structure. In such geometric framework quantum states are represented by classical-like Liouville densities. After a complete characterization of classical-like observables in a finite-dimensional quantum theory, the observable C*-algebra is described in geometric Hamiltonian terms. In the final part of the work, the classical-like Hamiltonian formulation is applied to the study of composite quantum systems providing a notion of entanglement measure.
