Sergi, Alessandro (2006) Quantum-Classical Dynamics of Wave Fields. arXiv:quant-ph/0511229. (Unpublished)
The recent approach to the quantum-classical mechanics of phase space dependent operators is recast into a formalism for wave fields. It turns out that such wave fields obey a system of coupled non-linear equations where each equation is not Hermitian. However, backward and forward time-evolution is combined in such a way as to conserve probability. Notwithstanding their non-linear form, the equations of motion for such phase space dependent wave fields can be expressed by means of a suitable non-Hamiltonian bracket. Thus, it can be realized that the non-Hamiltonian dynamics of quantum-classical wave fields is a straightforward generalization of the formalism for non-linear quantum mechanics that Weinberg proposed recently.
