Quantum Physics


Wave Function for Classical Mechanics

Authors: Janne Mikael Karimäki

In this paper the relationship of classical physics and quantum physics is studied by introducing a partial differential equation, which describes classical mechanics, but looks very similar to the Schrödinger wave equation of quantum mechanics. This work is largely based on David Bohm's causal interpretation of quantum mechanics, but is in some sense complementary to it. In Bohm's theory the Schrödinger wave equation is used to derive classical looking equations of motion for quantum physics. Here exactly the opposite is done. The equations of classical physics are put into a form resembling the Schrödinger equation of quantum physics.

Comments: 9 Pages. Other people have had this idea before me. This may still be interesting for some people interested in the foundations of physics.
