Lagrangian formulation of the Schrödinger equation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We recast, the Schrödinger equation in a new Lagrangian formulation. The equation is - iℏdψ (x, t) / dt = L̂tp (x, t), where L̂ is the Lagrangian operator. Expressions for L̂ and for d/dt - ∂/∂t are derived in terms of coordinate and momentum operators.
