go although again the basic construction of a simple quantum field were not exactly what I have read your vote no again Murray gambit may be slightly different young were OK so as I said we've of introducing fields From particles seem not to let you look away Ucon starlet particles and reconstruct wiII described by field for you start with field and then work wife fields are described by particles Whitefield waves fields have corn in way that will go both ways for we started by starting with particles we said Look that's fine could be talking about 1 particle or 2 particles free particles a fixed number of particles that he won outright study all possible numbers of particles by particles Merrill speaking about a single species of particle we Conway the tonight what happens if you have more room when species but Bob for the moment 1 kind of particle in only 1 kind of Article II but later theory in which weakens simultaneously in 1 fell swoop service Creek are talk about a number of particles of all the things of multiple particles including situations where the number of particles change now why would be allegedly led there at wealth In real life numbers of particles change the number of photons in this room was constantly changing the being emitted by the electric light bulbs are in other contexts particles became turning in other kinds of particles sorrow Be neutron indicate into a proton and electron and neutrino and the process number of neutrons changes the number of protons change member electrons neutrinos in a fact that poll lumber particles change however we have the think about particles we have the think not only about the quantum mechanics of a fixed number of that we have the think of that number is changeable so we need a flexible enough pool the be studying what happened last single quantum mechanics which embraces essentially any number of particles and even cheating number particles that's what they are baffled point there is a matter for the point of field bodily questions about that and all over again so the mathematics is that it is not hard but if it's not abstract abstract and place it would not Her with as young as we use the B for 1 they are morass reminder is not necessarily a tool instantly people orthogonal functions member and all that kind of thing so it's good goes well I Levy you learn something rather than nothing of care there were no easy the learn not to or something OK so we started with a single particle court mechanics singleparticle the description of 1 single particle quantum McCarrick going that need that we have state vectors but they perform 1 particle we have wave functions for those particles if we have a stake of the singleparticle scoreless sigh a little sigh a little sire will also stay in Ford's wave function if we have a state vector for a single particle than and the wave function is just be in a product of the state vector with a particle at position acts labeled X means of particle act point X the state's sunny meters some general space but of the singleparticle and that's called sigh what you do all of that it is a formula crash sigh star vexed sigh of X is a wave functions that these are not quantum fields when I got a quantum field I will use large capitalized letters even if they happen to be the same it was object was at correspond look the probability the following the particle act X probability density the probability density could find particle next probability density problem bands you could through in the rest of the letters back about the probability density result when you integrated although position where you get you want that happens in this case that what happens to be the number of particles wasn't so eager ones but you could also say you get the number of particles were a summary interesting because we only have 1 particle begin with doing 1 particle quarter Kerik's lasted 2 true fact now we next introduced a collection of 1 particle states form a basis for film normal orthogonal racers will you do not them away 1st of all the exit state themselves of farm to each other and they form a base which will go back minute but there are many many ways of choosing Macy's take br eigenvectors of any her mission operate will form a basis in particular a foreign arrested may be especially interested In energy Eigen states for example of particle box that represents a box the horizontal axis is position vertical axis is the potential energy when you get to the edge of the box the potential energy

becomes Hewlett's him apart from his reflects also came through in that case the groundstate wave function looks like that the 1st example call out sigh what next the next energy ideas they looks like that caught 2 of X is basically signed Chinese are over filter 2 knowledge and characterized by a number of novel about peculiarly Astana was sigh 1 which has no site too has 1 Knollwood Soviet X and since these are supposed to be energy argued that orthogonal pooch over a former North normal basis so it's right the equation back the equation variety is wrapped in the role of size star on of Texas was side Jr Rex but see product the excess was actually remember show go project if defies equal the J strange state of product as 1 or more state is different the orthogonal corresponding with 2 different energies dealt by J. nonzero Prijedor tomorrow a fact Israeli another uh another little manipulation on of what is because get to have that ticker 4 cases was that goes back to be a posture with quantum mechanics the posture of quantum mechanics said about probabilities desire next the Tuesday in a product of site with state localized that exits call the probability amplitude the posture watts of quantum mechanics which are like to go back to book square about probability Seoul OK here's a little trick a little mathematical trick that Over and over again thank you off normal your favorite author normal basis of parks they could be signed as they could because signs they could be harmonic oscillator wave functions whatever some collection of size which from normal and if the author longwall former then if you take this object to what is a subject subject it is thief operate it operates on a state where she worked but just explorer pros were act on state was built other acts are stateside then the beauty of the Dirac notation you could just take the formula that you've written them when your act with this thing on the state sigh with is a member of a park of so I will I went that's were guards are now used a fact about awful normal basis if you Of all elements of the awful normal based on roads in this case all the energy eigenvectors up to Woods Cemetery what get now you have operated by the identity operated the operator that we act on any vectors you back saying that while those elements in the yards me in the note should go back to it don't take my word for it improve it by it's a useful thinkin out OK let's see use that now the following following way let's take up project at the with this thing white Oh would like to do was going to take over act you on would only that act on each day to a right which is localized position x then on the left wherever act well actually what we're doing is taking the inner product of a staple the particle at with at White anybody know what that is their mathematical symbol of the letters the Dirac delta function was conqueror for more votes are like that yet let's try to that is equal to the sum on head wiII fight on a X or plugin you're operated here at the nothing but now I have a formula here we had a product of with white is sigh all right of what's yacht theater product of any state were eigenvectors position is the army is wave functional let's face it status I have with functions like water it over here so IRA of extra lawyers Horvath equal has Siegel Delta of X murders wife not some more white or yacht Miller's the 2nd 1 yes the 2nd 1 as soon as the U.S. stock begin Alannah Myles syrup if we take any lowlevel normal basis they could be the eigenvectors of any her mission after the button particularly energy and you multiply for each 1 of those states sigh start Prime Star and in some although them you always get a delta function with thinkin hours will say useful Rameses many many ways of writing the delta function just take any normal bases and the lists these could be signed and costarring sorry are another way of writing the delta function but end this to the basic mathematics boom over America's plan think OK now works comeback worked let's go to the problem of study many particles or the same car now

we characterized as 1 set of states which is particularly useful as a set of states in which you say how many particles are With each 1 of these energies for example how many particles are there with state by 1 site to site 3 himself for and so we can take the Maltby particle systems and characterized by a basis of states which is just In 1 in 2 0 0 laptop not enough I thought about that it is only after patient numbers so the occupation numbers which tell you how many particles are with each energy level and overstate metastable particle states they don't belong in the same vectors faced with the singleparticle wave functions the singleparticle wave functions are themselves or whole vector space but when talking about a big there's a bigger systems so we should not confuse these singleparticle state with the armed with a more general structures or talking about we use saying patient for them because nobody of the better notations Barack roars kept Barker there are OK next we would like To be able to change the number of particles maybe we do maybe we don't want to change the total number of particles that not clear yet but we like gala change them and so would like to be able to raise and lower the end solely introduce a oscillator face each might be some oscillate at the moment this is nothing to do with oscillation this is just the track adjustable the bookkeeping strict or it will be more than that later for each won't ideas we introduce a creation operate already are raising operator but scholar Claessen operators and now want to create a chart creation operator and annihilation operator and the creator of annihilation operators it's convenient that make them just work in exactly the same way as harmonic oscillators just a convenient way of dealing with plus I and a minus sign our study right now that there another convention for the same thing on drug Ray is the call was a dagger that looks like a plus sign not quite but nevertheless and this calling this 1 a you often see written that way it's a dagger creates a particle 80 does not work we have a correspondent is exactly this OK this basis states of a mini particles which was called Fox FOC case but was a Russian physicist who tomorrow those name attached to this I don't know her OK now find very can of very convenient to see how works to introduce the notion of a field operated the field operator has the same symbol is the wave functions sigh of acts but it's not wave function with Taowei function not a state vector for 1 particle it's an operator Anderson operate at that and on the basis of state of the many particles it itself contains creation annihilation operators like the soul of clutch right the notion a field operator the best way to motivated is to use it and see what values a opera Sean I'm a little bit afraid that go that you won't be withheld myopic cases from my lord cases that's what uppercase site right on its definition is the following Mr. some although RIA lot straight the annihilation operator for particle in state party times the wave functions of a particle if warned stayed and that's it some of allwhite know somebody asked me last week Aziz had anything to do with Fourier transforms into bed at if the wave functions here where the wave functions of a free particle guidance states due a free particle is not a box just the infinitely big box or autos Oregon State was argued wave functions plane waves equally IKX Anita the miners sorry to the IPX Simitis IPX so in that case if we were using free particles infinitely bigbox this would be an expansion in signs and costarred in those aid would be the coefficient of science because they would be the Fourier coefficients before expected extract that another numbers their operators operators of things you measure of things that the that play the role of operators inquiry here OK so that's 1 thing we complex called her Michigan card you get over it sigh dagger of X of X yeah was it mean to say we have an operation which depends on it so what this means we have a different operators have reacts that's all we have a lot of creation and annihilation operators have we can build a lot of independent operators the Vatican build operated at each point x by combining the eighties with signs of our X point decks so we don't this we make a different operator at every position so we have a operate a function of position operator valued functional position this complex or emission conjugate is same thing except creation operators here this is a team right I get so used to the OK a plus sigh dagger stock might of X now it doesn't matter that it's rather weird the remote page some people use a patient with a score of 5 star from people use worn with this call sign illegal up there the definitions and see what you want but he is a definition we the to operate a functions deal 1 of these as mission operator Our very creation operators annihilation operated on mission

conduits Our each other if you a had them will also be if you ate them you make something the Commission hearing emission operator any operator and machine card you get richer soullessly these till they become permission and her mission means are observable means something you could measure in a laboratory solve some of them for you measure and the differences in different emission weapons if you take a different from our number and its complex conjugate get something real trucks it's only pure magic review multiplied by I renewed something mission sorrel each the sullen difference of these defined mission narrow observable right now we're not observing them would is commuters removed bookkeeping devices OK now show you another way interpretation of Sysorex what at In particular let's ask what when acts on the vacuum vacuum means a state with no particles of overall so vacuum call vacuum which we usually do notice by Oh is really a FoxBASE state in which all the occupation numbers 0 0 FoxBASE state with which all the occupation numbers you sometimes just called the vacuum orders called the state 0 OK let's act but back yard work right the following formula this is only 1 particle state 1 particle in only 1 particle and let's right at the following former lets you lose this anybody northern need for this kind of formula is no it's not uh is it projected to trivial projection operators the more it's called a resolution of the identity of a way of writing your operated as a solemn overall a lot of raw fodder vectors lots of lots but plugged in the resolution of the identity someone why are a side I was I I is a state in which is want particle and only 1 particle energy level here what is this thing here this is sorry X X X R was as object called the top formula and you see that when new project that X you get away function this year it is some money starter all of X it's a complex conjugate of the wave function of high energy level examined will have a wave function as complex it were fortune staff would have the opposite of order where now this stadium that's a state with 1 particle in the energy level so I'm right this way overtake creation operator from making a particle in life energy multiplying it by the vacuum I've created the 1 particle state party by applying creation operator on vacuum and that's exactly the stayed here on the other hand was just compote and usually function my rule is signed but I erase the death not definition of field all case go to the 2nd floor I star the field operator so now what are you plus a body times the complex view wave function that's exactly what you see here right losers exactly equal poor field operator position X on vacuum that gives us a new interpretation of sorry if they are greater which creates a vacuum a particle position I think that's a fairly intuitive things back 2 quantum operator the position next start the injury ART create particles with certain energy levels the Sinai I create particles of location that's also what kind of creation operator the field operator itself as a kind of creation operator but instead of creating a particle With the energy with definite managing it creates a particle With definite position yeah yup should be stars to be dagger but easy you never use star for operating whose is that good that where all not all of will yards away function on numbers the number is an ally of the trivia operators members sometimes ordinary numbers are called scene numbers this was the mother of invention of Dirac ceased classical as classical numbers operators he called killed numbers for quite June numbers don't always commute see numbers always commerical themselves but they also commit with everything else just numbers OK so now I have a lovely new interpretation of the field operator it's the creation operated for particle at a point of space let's look at some interesting quantities think with her a public can put this up just to get both more experience with this looks but with a little bit if adjusted force if it is interesting inquiry into OBX the operator side Barak

of X sigh of sex now is this is same is off top of the blackboard up they'll be exercised star x 5 x not it's not the same thing it looks very similar but not the same thing in formulas on top of the size is just wave functions 1 particle wave functions and operators and the righthand side is 1 by total probability this object here is an operator Sison operated by beggars and operated act on a state that does something which creates a particle was 1 mile it's a particle so voters don't West it has some old structural similarity with the thing up on top 1 wonders what is it doesn't have the meaning music producer of something that has a physical significance something that you could measure incidentally intermission because you take any operator and multiply by a submission conjugate the result permission of for multiplying ADR complex number by complex conjugate result always Rio OK facility we figure out what the saying its 1st that lets replaced the sign by the definition so this is it kinda will be X and now star that's a somber although or failure messy but get easy ARE dagger ARE plus times sigh star party of X without With Applewhite without the witch Side now I'm right side as another separate not some over the same i.e. it's a somewhat a different bodies but I can just college 80 that's a bubble sort of bubbles from here and the bubbles has 8 J. society J of X I looked a bit complicated and In the grow over the goal over acts would double son of jail plus the fact that the integral to as all space and eye injury go from 1 to infinity so if you actually a calculated to put a new computer you computer would run forever and ever and ever and ever with Mel Hall our however we can do better flexibility it the goal over X 1st now I think we have a formula here about what line of X shot there there was right here sigh I Iive X was so J that's just the orthogonality relations salt were making the gray over X flight bag approach sorry I just get built by J mice also write a simpler way this is equal to the value of the world some all on my injury a plus RED AJC Collins the chronic adult words we get at Terminal 3 each foggy where Free giant accept only when I'm equal and it is equal to the sum are of a dagger or ii a it was a bad idea they are for harmonic oscillator this is the number operator with a hose are I didn't values are we in the little in this is the beginning of this can be written as the the sum of all Of the number operator for each 1 of these oscillators another word it's just the total number of particles member particles 1st mode for some fresh wave functions but number particles in a 2nd wave function was part of a 3rd wave function so what thing it took operated that represents the total number of particles for each 1 of these Fox states is just some of the middling now is an infinite number of the right in into 1203 3 is is not as it's going to be a finite number well remember that most of those bodies correspond very very hearty energy if the state that we're talking about not dominated by the ceiling high energy use and these must fall off quickly the number particles with energies of Brazilian billions billions must be a century 0 so in order that the problem of on energy be fine you certainly have a habit of Lumumba particles missing here typically find most of full most similarity with the start was also the problem of particles but only in the case with Member particles was known to be 1 that's just go to the probe a probability is 1 have a rapport with a number of particles as out of here exactly the same formal looking structure is not telling us total probabilities it's telling us how many particles we have those that there was a farce a probability that deal with the white but just before poverty for a share of lead you would vote for a year before war I because this is not a look at me and the question this thing here is a density of particles from like them Barak white visited the Rosenthal Lumumba particles are Michael right that's a probability density rho right density but the density is not necessarily definite number would in Quanah Kerik's thinkin Beahm observable but there are states generally capable states thing is not going have a definite value you could measure you could measure the density of particles strictly speaking you would measure the density of particles . what would you do it is the great over little volume has comedy particles are in volume of my integrators or a
37:54
small volume of wall space that we have particles were that's more volume I can measure I will always give the same answer I measures Wednesday that measure another state is so like measuring any of the quantum mechanical variable you get a variety of answers there gone but this will tell you what the number of particles is more what twirl sought that the kind events and is to be literally that he but what some operators a supplier it is she added all those they will receive the dollar is the single largest right now let's come back from moment this is not the most general state you could this is a you have also a basis of states Yukon policies just like in any vector space Yukon and vectors to command vectors with different numbers of particles you can add value if you have the same number particles you could add vectors which particles years of particles years ago and that your mother vector with some of Pfizer's changed by 12 you could together with vector which while particles will bless they find their many state by hand and superposition of states many many possibilities in any buyer whatever the state is the operator representing the number of particles more while you're at his side by side the thing EU measures to think only a measure when you in that's more while you're U.S. company particles solved although I haven't told you had a measure signed up TriStar side there is a familiar face just number particles of Bali whilst also but the point is that a fair jury problem is fine or be part of a widowed desert you don't look a love said his wallet and rational that all of us aboard supposing you have ah particles rebound just classically what particles you want to know what the probability that anyone particles while you wealth or high approximation of number particles rightly of those 1 measurement measure how particles of romance more volume why by the that's not the definition of the probability of get you could accidentally gives you are so we get too many most of the times within a margin of error you will get the number of particles being the probability for a particle to be No. particles provided by rights or it's not identity to save this thing when the vise appropriately divided by the total some identity to say that it is Beyond the probability for particle be in that region the probability convene half a tall readers space probability a half year and a half years have a million particles you could accidentally discovered the old particles on 1 side not very likely but you could discover pay you make a measurement and be answered is million on 1 side of the site not called for the probabilities but most of the time within the margin of error within about a square root of the number particles you get the probability of accidents in which I was a little waffling on what we work or probability of not this thing really stands for the measure for the hour for the observable which really corresponds to the number of particles that you actually get when you look at it however now that they got shot what boat got a bad do that but would you could do not to that that normally doesn't occur but would you could do was have a clamor superposition of states in which this some number of electrons distributed throughout different states and then a some number of rigid distributed different ways number electron photons however because they don't have charged you have no problem to proposing different numbers of a fourpart now when electrons you could uh don't forget your other species of particles in the world and particularly positron so you could superpose states With different number of electrons and part of positrons as long as the total charges of the Member OK but right now we just invent across all the concept of a quantum field are the 1 more little manipulation to assure you have our example oral form of things it you could build worried I thought I was going to start their working there the expressions of operator made up of a size which stands for the energy of the horses from harm we probably won't get quite there tonight but look what's what's would begin 2 foot is our we found that integral X upside Assad was seen as some of the number of particles of each hour goes with manipulation poll of fish His name is now let's slightly different and stock With the formula for the fog energy now I'm interested now only in systems with independent particles articles on directly with each other that's typically an approximation it pays the work when the particles of pretty loop even cards if you may convince enough will start to to interact with each other many AG will not just be the song of the of folk art that have been make them plenty events much of the new American elaborate our but still In principle in principal energy is not equal to the sum of the energies of particles system but I think later particles on not tool been aren't told many of them feel volume which generally good approximation so let's take that approximation and there are think malaise very principle we particles free particles particles of interact with each other was Energy Energy is

about nearly scored Kerik's 1 particle or mechanics deposit at wrote their own the expression will be X sigh star of X anyway function whatever times my my squared off with 2 and a paucity of X Siurek so what what this thing Beery by now let's say expectation value of the energy saying this is each has basically cemetery age between Brian Kidd vectors the expectation value of the energy so his a formula for the expectation value the energy of 1 particle won't tell you the actual operator represent Hamiltonian of many particles system but gift from this would be answers for sex still wellknown that but I'm looking for another expression for from the same thing I wanna get to this point and saying still they left with that found that but it but yeah I know it is not like that but I can make a guess what we build goal from me on what we do to go from probability defying particle could get the number of particles of small region indeed we replaced the little signs the big size and that so I gave us the sum of all the particles are so the same question Saleh let's try used his is a guest I guess from me it would be a guest for you accept further with of course is not a gash if and I remember learning about this with the little he probably thinking 60 warned there was kind of blown away service reading direct book redirect book Mrs. blew me away that this is the same as there's so much progress but go through the steps the 1st thing to do is to replace society by by definition of so replaced cyborg definitions this becomes a double the X down this 1 here it is some Hawaii AT that so I star of X right at formal review Ms. are here it was some more with J. R sorry Jr the X 80 J. remote happy with that reminders J I guess but all I did I formula this committee written as a summer what I NJT places 2nd summations signed it and no sandwich is my used elsewhere or touring because know what that this mean through this Back on the subject here what does it mean well it simply means that you do these operations on ordinary wave functions this is an ordinary wave function we know differentiated we know have multiplied by VRX solved we have an operational we know how do we might not be able umbilicus America too complicated but we define operation this differentiate side twice as multiplied by but we already know at least I hope we now somewhat of a black hole here but throw in place is a short hair equations Schroeder nickel equations tells us exactly what this ears Miners elsewhere total and was via VMX act signed just gives us made by time so we can arrange moderation because right this until the X some J a plus I scuba together with a miners jailed there now start II a star of there is this beast multiplying side had just Omega GA Cyrus J. books what's MXF How much a debate over X in debate over X when you into made acts star of acts I J. that's just chronic adult just quota to some OR injury a plus RIA a minus J dealt by J. but With 1 no factor that we didn't have room we did the probability or we did just account bigger particles major that's exactly the this Lobley expression this is the energy of a field and given in terms on something quadratic in the field will show differential operator Walker new compare that with the elected by memory electron dynamic very very similar kinds of things or any field theory you take a field you differentiate them a couple of times quadratic expression and integrate the space that the characteristic formula for the integral for the energy of a field all field theories have our property that the energy is equal typically want something quadratic in the field with a couple of derivatives acting on the field of derivatives of sight so this is an example of the energy of a field that's also the Hamiltonian these things are energy on these things are operators who left designers as an operator son number that's it's an operator 1 operator about Thing which has to do with the energy it's the Hamiltonian of the field theory the Hamiltonian of a field theory but it's also Rio as the what we would have to go to war for us to be EU South how how I went to every single step the fact that New Labour de steps Wells but I don't see why it's a function of position but it's a observable poorly Cyprus side daggers quantum mechanical observable measured it 1 place you could measurably of a place at the same time so what what you want it to come to the position of observable
