Canonical Transformations in Quantum Mechanics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 43

Description:
Quantum canonical transformations are defined algebraically outside of a Hilbert space context. This generalizes the quantum canonical transformations of Weyl and Dirac to include non-unitary transformations. The importance of non-unitary transformations for constructing solutions of the Schroedinger equation is discussed.
