Observables in Terms of Antonymous and Observable Functions

  • Cecilia Flori
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 944)


In this chapter we will introduce the notions of antonymous and observable functions put forward in [18]. These are utilised to express the physical quantise \(\breve {\delta }(\hat {A})\) corresponding to the self-adjoint operators \(\hat {A}\) in a more efficient way, which does not relay on calculating the approximations of \(\breve {\delta }(\hat {A})\) for each context \(V\in \mathcal {V}\) as it was done in [26].
