Proving Vector Formula with Kronecker Delta Function and Levi-Civita Symbol

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Applying and in Proving the Vector Formula:  By: Quennie J. Paylaga   Prove: using Kronecker Delta Function and Levi-Civita Symbol.     To prove this, we let We can write the expression for in summation form as:      where where i, j, l are dummy summation variables. Each of which can be any letter […]

Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues of a Perturbed Quantum System

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

by  HENRILEN A. CUBIO Finding the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the state of a quantum system is one of the most important concepts in quantum mechanics. And it is here where many students get confused. In order to learn this by heart, one has to do several exercises.  There are many ways that can be […]

Simultaneous Diagonalization of Hermitian Matrices

Friday, May 8th, 2009

by MARYJANE D. MADULARA In an earlier post about the properties of Hermitian operators, it was noted that quantum operators of physical significance are Hermitian by type. Here we discuss more fully about Hermitian matrices. A n x n matrix is Hermitian if it is equal to its corresponding adjoint matrix. Now, for each Hermitian […]

Schwarz Inequality

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Schwarz Inequality, also known as Cauchy–Schwarz inequality, Cauchy inequality, or the Cauchy–Schwarz–Bunyakovsky inequality, is useful in many Mathematical fields such as Linear Algebra. This Inequality was formulated by Augustin Cauchy (1821), Viktor Yakovlevich Bunyakovsky (1859) and Hermann Amandus Schwarz (1888). The uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics, which relates the incompatibility of two operators, rests on […]
