States in non-associative quantum mechanics: uncertainty relations and semiclassical evolution
- 305 Downloads
A non-associative algebra of observables cannot be represented as operators on a Hilbert space, but it may appear in certain physical situations. This article employs algebraic methods in order to derive uncertainty relations and semiclassical equations, based on general properties of quantum moments.
