Positive Nonlinear Dynamical Group Uniting Quantum Mechanics and Thermodynamics

Preprint English OPEN
Beretta, Gian Paolo;
  • Subject: Quantum Physics

We discuss and motivate the form of the generator of a nonlinear quantum dynamical group 'designed' so as to accomplish a unification of quantum mechanics (QM) and thermodynamics. We call this nonrelativistic theory Quantum Thermodynamics (QT). Its conceptual foundation... View more
