Title. In physics, the Heisenberg picture (also called the Heisenberg representation) is a formulation (largely due to Werner Heisenberg in 1925) of quantum mechanics in which the operators (observables and others) incorporate a dependency on time, but the state vectors are time-independent, an arbitrary fixed basis rigidly underlying the theory.. The Heisenberg picture. 1.2.3 Interaction picture The interaction picture is a mixture of the Heisenberg and Schr odinger pictures: both the quantum state j (t)i and the operator A^(t) are time dependent. Before we discuss the Hamiltonian of the system, let us consider a non trivial example which helps us understand the physics behind those two pictures. gozzi@ts.infn.it. 0000063816 00000 n Throughout this paper, we will simplify equations by using the conventions c = ¯h = m = 1. 0000154158 00000 n 0000036455 00000 n 0000141752 00000 n 0000149273 00000 n How about the simplest system that we can think of.
