Theory of variational quantum simulation — Quantum. The orthodox approach to the theory of quantum mechanics is to base it upon a set of axioms 1 This is concise and consistent, but not physically appealing. In particular, there is no very obvious bridge leading from classical dynamics to quantum mechanics. In this note a variational principle is proposed which forms. Quantum theory is developed from a q-number operator action principle with a representation-invariant technique for limiting the number of independent system variables.
It is shown that in a q-number theory such a limitation on the number of variations is necessary, since a completely arbitrary q-number variation implies an infinite number. That are most relevant to modern physics, this valuable book surveys variational principles and examines their relationship to dynamics and quantum theory.

Feynman s clock, a new variational principle, and parallel-in. The variational principle of most importance in dynamics is Hamilton s principle which was first announced in Although other variational principles such as the principle of least action preceded Hamilton s principle, none has held the Author: Donald T. Publisher: Courier Corporation. ISBN: Category: Science. Page: The variational method is a versatile tool for classical simulation of a variety of quantum systems.
Great efforts have recently been devoted to its extension to quantum computing for efficiently solving static many-body problems and simulating real and imaginary time dynamics.
In this work, we first review the conventional variational principles, including the Rayleigh-Ritz method for solving static problems, and the Dirac and Frenkel variational principle, the McLachlan s variational. We introduce a discrete-time variational principle inspired by the quantum clock originally proposed by Feynman and use it to write down quantum evolution as a ground-state eigenvalue problem.
The construction allows one to apply ground-state quantum many-body theory to quantum dynamics, extending The principle of least action in mechanics, electromagnetic theory, and quantum mechanics; The variational method in quantum mechanics; Gauss s principle of least constraint and Hertz s principle of least curvature; Hilbert s action principle in general relativity, leading to the Einstein field equations.

Variational principles play a fundamental role in deriving the evolution equations of physics. They work well in the case of non-dissipative evolution, but for dissipative systems, the variational principles are not unique and not constructive. Variational principles. Quantum theory.

A variational principle in physics is an alternative method for determining the state or dynamics of a physical system, by identifying it as an extremum minimum, maximum or saddle point of a function or functional.

Starting with the exact variational formulation of quantum mechanics or quantum field theory in the Schroedinger picture, and using Gaussian trail wave functions, an exact functional Schroedinger equation is obtained. The time-dependent Hartree-Fock approximation is obtained and extended to many oscillators and to field theory. The problem of quantum roll, in which an initial Gaussian wave packet starting at an unstable classical equilibrium point evolves in time, is treated using this formalism. Quantum tunnelling is also studied. Cooper, F. January 1,

PDF | A variational principle is presented, by means of which the equation of stochastic dynamics (e.g., large deviation theory  and stochastic mechanics ).
Two dramatically different philosophical approaches to classical mechanics were proposed during the 17th — 18th centuries. Newton developed his vectorial formulation that uses time-dependent differential equations of motion to relate vector observables like force and rate of change of momentum. Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton, and Jacobi, developed powerful alternative variational formulations based on the assumption that nature follows the principle of least action. These variational formulations now play a pivotal role in science and engineering.

Из-за спины Беккера появилось лицо Смита. - Слушаю, сэр. - Мне кажется, мистер Беккер опаздывает на свидание. Проследите, чтобы он вылетел домой немедленно. Смит кивнул: - Наш самолет в Малаге. - Он похлопал Беккера по спине. - Получите удовольствие, профессор.
Что это? - вскрикнула Сьюзан между сигналами. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ перегрелся! - сказал Стратмор. В его голосе слышалось беспокойство. - Быть может, Хейл был прав, говоря, что система резервного питания подает недостаточное количество фреона. - А как же автоматическое отключение.
