LOG#148. Path integral (III).

Round 3! Fight… with path integrals! XD Introduction: generic aspects Consider a particle moving in one dimension (the extension to ND is trivial), the hamiltonian being of the usual form: The fundamental question and problem in the path integral (PI) … Continue reading

LOG#146. Path integral (I).

My next thematic thread will cover the Feynman path integral approach to Quantum Mechanics! The standard formulation of Quantum Mechanics is well known. It was built and created by Schrödinger, Heisenberg and Dirac, plus many others, between 1925-1931. Later, it … Continue reading

LOG#141. Basic QFT in curved ST(I).

This post begins a thread about Quantum Field Theory (QFT) in curved spacetime (ST). They are based on some of my notes about the subject. Enjoy it! I. LIMITS FROM QUANTUM MECHANICS AND GENERAL RELATIVITY. The Einstein-Hilbert action in General … Continue reading

LOG#042. Pulley with variable mass.

This interesting problem was recently found in certain public examination. I will solve it here since I found it fascinating and useful, since it is a problem with “variable mass”. A pulley with negligible mass is given (see the figures … Continue reading
