Operational Dynamic Modeling: Quantum-to-classical Transition and Relativistic Quantum Transport
Denys I. Bondar and Renan Cabrera Department of Chemistry, Princeton University
In this joint talk, we first introduce Operational Dynamic Modeling (ODM) as a systematic theoretical framework for deducing equations of motion from the evolution of observed average values. Then, it is demonstrated that ODM is capable of encompassing wide ranging dynamics from classical non-relativistic mechanics to quantum field theory. Among all the applications, we show how to overcome some long-standing obstacles encountered in phase-space representation of relativistic fermions, which is at the heart of the relativistic quantum transport theory.
