What is K space in quantum mechanics?

K space refers to a space where things are in terms of momentum and frequency instead of position and time and the way you convert between real space and k-space (or Fourier s (MORE)

What is quantum mechanics?

Quantum mechanics is the mathematical description of matter on an atomic and subatomic scale. It is focused around the wavefunction of a system. Wave functions contain all inf (MORE)

What is density matrix in quantum mechanics?

It is a Hermitian positive-semidefinite matrix of trace one that describes the statistical state of a quantum system. Hermitian matrix is defined as A=A^(dagger). Meaning th (MORE)
