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 […]

Properties of Quantum Oscillators 1

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

by SIMON JUDE BURGOS In this post we investigate the properties of a quantum oscillator by using an algebraic tool in quantum mechanics called ‘ladder operators’. Using the ladder operator it becomes easy to find the following properties for a quantum oscillator in a given energy level:  the average position and momentum and the square […]
