Quantization with Path Integral Methods

  • Naoto Nagaosa
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


In the previous chapter we learned about operators occurring in quantum mechanics. In this chapter we demonstrate that it is also possible to describe quantum mechanics using integrals in the space of functions, namely functional integrals and path integrals, instead of using operators.
