Image processing Digital techniques. Woods, Richard E. Richard Eugene [author] ProQuest Firm. Related item. Internet Resources. Summary "For 40 years, Image Processing has been the foundational text for the study of digital image processing. The book is suited for students at the college senior and first-year graduate level with prior background in mathematical analysis, vectors, matrices, probability, statistics, linear systems, and computer programming.

As in all earlier editions, the focus of this edition of the book is on fundamentals. Their feedback led to expanded or new coverage of topics such as deep learning and deep neural networks, including convolutional neural nets, the scale-invariant feature transform SIFT , maximally-stable extremal regions MSERs , graph cuts, k-means clustering and superpixels, active contours snakes and level sets , and exact histogram matching. Major improvements were made in reorganizing the material on image transforms into a more cohesive presentation, and in the discussion of spatial kernels and spatial filtering.

Major revisions and additions were made to examples and homework exercises throughout the book. For the first time, we added MATLAB projects at the end of every chapter, and compiled support packages for you and your teacher containing, solutions, image databases, and sample code. Phrased in terms of measurable quantities, we must ask how much the signal-to-noise ratio of the spectrum has been increased, by letting a 28 Survey of Spectrometers Ch.

WTiole classes of meas- inteToml, before have become accessible through inter! This again indi- cates more effective use of radiation by the interferometers, particularly for diffuse sources of radiation. The signal -to-noise ratio of the spec- trum is also affected by the throughput, and in Chapter 4 we will show how the signal-to-noise ratio varies with t for different kinds of meas- urements. It then becomes comparable in efficiency with the Michelson interferometric spectrometer.

The modification was sketched in Fig. We shall call such instruments multiplexing mask spectrom- eters Harwit and Decker refer to them as dispersing spectromo- dulators. Although we shall usually discuss grating instruments, of course the same analysis applies equally well to prism spectrometers. The key element in the design of these instruments is the mask. In the most general case, illustrated in Fig. The mask normally consists of two parts: a a large encoding or modulating mask, and b a smaller framing or blocking mask, often referred to as theyrame see Figs.

The frame permits radiation to reach only a certain portion of the encoding mask. By step- ping the encoding mask across the frame a series of different mask configurations are obtained. After a detector reading has been made, the encoding mask is stepped one position across the frame, giving a new mask configuration, and again the detector is read. The encoding mask may also move continuously with respect to the frame.

Figures 2. In Fig. Some 30 Survey of Spectrometers Ch. The encoding mask a has a number of open and dosed elements, elongated like spectrometer slits. It is used in conjunction with a frame or blocking mask b which remains fixed. The frame permits light to teach only a limited number of encoding elements, for any given position of the encoding mask.

Figures c and d show two different ways of moving the encoding mask relative to the frame. The masks may be placed at the en- trance aperture, the exit aperture, or both. After Harwit and Decker Multiplexing in itself is no guarantee of improved perfor- mance. The earliest instruments of this type placed a rotating wheel or chopper in this position. The wheel is placed so that different components or wavelengths of the dispersed light fall on different annuli. The annulus at radius rfrom the center of the wheel consist of pairs of alternately open and closed slots of equal length.

Then rjU is analyzed electrically to determine ifij,. A more detailed description can be found for example in Stewart The difficulties which arise in such apparatus have been studied by Gra- inger , and Grainger, Ring and Stell Spectrometers of this type were independently conceived by Fellgett , Ibbett, Aspinall and Grainger , and Decker and Harwit Since the mask is stationary, harmonics and cross-talk are avoided. These authors also realized that now it would be possible to use more complicated masks and so to actually encode the spectrum. This technique had in fact already been suggested many years earlier by Golay , The use of such encoding schemes eventually also permitted a return to instruments that employ continuously mov- ing masks, as we shall see in the Hadamard instruments described in Chapter 6.

His work in coding for error-correction was equally fundamental — see Golay a , , , and MacWilliams and Sloane We shall describe two instruments designed by Golay. The first of these, the static multislit spectrometer Golay , , makes use of a set of eight encoding masks, four at the entrance and four at the exit. These masks are constructed from what Golay calls a pair of complementary series, defined as follows.

For example, the sequences are complementary, since there are three pairs of like adjacent elements 34 Survey of Spectrometers Ch. In this instrument the masks are fixed and the grating or prism moves. The masks are aligned in such a way that all the light at some desired wavenumber which enters through mask 1 is imaged on mask V and exits freely since I and V are both the a mask. The radiation reaching the first detector is determined by the number of pairs of like elements with a separation of J places in the a- sequence.

On the other hand the radiation reaching the second detec- tor is determined by the number of pairs of unlike elements with a separation of j places in the fr-sequence. Since a and b are complemen- tary sequences, these two numbers are equal by definition.

Therefore 2. Here 1 represents an open slit and 0 a closed slit. Masks for a Golay static multislit spectrometer. In the instrument described by Golay the radiation is dispersed by a prism and reflected by a Littrow mirror cf. Stewart , p. The difference between the two detector signals is displayed on an oscil- loscope screen. The oscilloscope trace is stepped in synchronism with the mirror, so that the spectrum of the radiation is displayed on the oscilloscope. Golay showed that a necessary condition for a pair of complementary sequences of length p to exist is that p is even and is the sum of two squares.

Thus p must be one of 2, 4, 8, 10, 16, 18, 20, 26, 32, 34, 36, Complementary sequences of lengths 2,4,8,16,32, For further appli- cations of these sequences see also Taki et al. Figure 2. Note that for rigidity in mounting there are 8 entrance and 8 exit masks. The capabilities of the static multislit spectrometer are analogous to those of a Fabry-Perot interferometer Born and Wolf , p.

Both the interferometer and the static multislit spec- trometer can gather radiation over a very wide aperture. In either case the effect is almost the same as far as the detector is concerned. The sig- nals produced by these instruments will be similar, and the instruments can be used in about the same range of applications.

We should note that strictly speaking the static multislit spectrometer is not a multiplex- ing instrument. It does not label different wavelengths with different modulation patterns. Rather it modulates only one wavelength at a time, leaving all others unchopped, and makes use of the encoding pro- cess solely for the purpose of increasing the instrumental throughput. This is also true of the next instrument we consider, the dynamic mul- tislit spectrometer.

Only one detector is used, which collects the light exiting through half of the exit masks, say masks V and VI in Fig. Thus radiation at the preferred wavenumber is fully blocked or fully transmitted to the detector twice during each revolution of the masks. By varying the position of the grating the whole spectrum is obtained. Golay actually used two separate 38 Survey of Spectrometers Ch.

Ebert-Fastie spectrometer illustrating how radiation at different wavelengths can be simultaneously encoded. First, he introduced binary codes into the design of masks. Second, he realized that rather large areas of the entrance plane of a dispersing spectrome- ter could be faithfully imaged onto the exit plane, so that a wide aper- ture instrument could be realized. In his paper Golay discusses some of the optical aberrations that impose limitations on this method. Consider the spectrom- eter shown in Fig. The dispersed light then is refocused in the exit plane by means of the same curved mirror.

This is called an Ebert-Fastie spectrometer see Fastie , To a first harmonic approximation this light has wavenumber which also depends only on k —j. Therefore the detector measures 2. A one-dimensional Fresnel zone plate or Girard grill. This instrument has the wide aperture advantage, and also multiplexes all the individual wavelength components. Golay never built such an instrument. In his paper Golay he pointed out that he did not have the necessary signal pro- cessing equipment. Phillips attempted to build such a device, but encountered many difficulties.

These difficulties do not arise in the Hadamard transform instruments described in the next chapter.

## Hadamard Transform Combined with PTS for PAPR Reduction in Direct-Detection Optical OFDM System

These are described in detail in the following chapters; for now we just say that they take the form shown in Figs. Chapter 3 The Basic Theory of Hadamard Transform Spectrometers and Imagers If n small objects are weighed in clumps rather than one at a time, the accuracy of the weighings can be increased by a factor of n. In this chapter we show that the signal-to-noise ratio in measuring an n-element spectrum can in some cases be increased by a factor proportional to -Jn.

We also prove a number of new results about the optimal design of double encod- ing schemes for spectrometers and imagers, and compare these instru- ments with Michelson interferometers. How much does encoding improve the quality of the spectrum or image? S-matrices make the best spring balance 44 3. These statements apply to a singly encoded spectrometer or imager, with one mask, as shown in Fig. In this chapter we shall also study the improvements that can be obtained with double encoding, using the type of instrument shown in Fig. Here also Hadamard and S-matrices are shown to be optimal.

This settles the open problems proposed in Harwit et al. The answer is to use the generalized inverse of the mask matrix. Chapter 4 will examine the circumstances under which this assumption is justified, and what happens to the improve- ment in signal-to-noise ratio when it is not. We also neglect the effects of aberrations, distortion, diffraction, moving masks, and errors in the masks. These will be dealt with in Chapters 5 and 6. We see that in analyzing an w-element spectrum with n measure- ments, a singly multiplexed instrument can be used with a variety of different encoding methods lines 2, 3, 4, 14 a , 14 b of the table.

All of these provide a signal-to-noise ratio equal to cVn times the signal-to-noise ratio of a conventional monochromator, for some con- stant c line 1. Using a doubly multiplexed instru- ment to compute an n-element spectrum also gives an increase in SNR. Again making more measurements than unknowns increases the SNR.

The material is based in part on Sloane et al. These are simpler in matrix notation. The goal of these measurements is to determine as accurately as possible. It is worth mentioning that there are also good arguments in favor of using a biased estimate, such as the James-Stein estimator — see Stein , James and Stein , Efron , and Efron and Morris , In the absence of more detailed statistical knowledge concerning the anticipated spectral shape or the detector noise characteristics, there is little alternative to the assumption of linearity.

But usually this is impossible and some other criterion must be used Three of the most common criteria for judging a weighing design W i. A weighing design W is said to be A-optimal if it minimizes the average mean square error, i. These criteria do not always agree. Let us calculate the mean square errors for our estimate. In other words, e. For examples see Fig. For constructions see Appendix. As a chemical balance weiehine design or mask, is A-optimal.

D-optimal, and E-optimal. The properties of Hadamard matrices are summarized in Fig. Furthermore equality holds in for all J if and only if equality holds in and For equality in the vectors must be parallel, i. In Table 3. But this only solves the problem when n is 1,2, or a multiple of 4. For other values of n less is known: see Sloane and Harw'it for a survey.

For matrices achieving the other bounds see for example Brenner and Cum- mings and Sloane and Harwii For large good method of obtaining a matrix with a large determinant is to take the next largest Hadamard matrix and prune it to size see Clements and Lindstrom Hadamard matrices provide optimal encoding no matter what shape the array may be. We now consider what happens when masks with only non- negative entries can be used. Of course this is still very much better than measuring the unknowns one at a time. Their properties are summarized in Fig.

Exam- ples are given in Figs. We conjecture that the best weighing designs or masks with non- negative entries are these S-matrices. We have not been able to prove this result. However, we can prove that S-matrices are so close to being optimal that for all practical purposes we can assume that they are the best.

More precisely, we make the following conjecture. Furthermore equality holds in if and only if Wis an S-matrix of order n. What we have not been able to show is that there is no mask which has a smaller e than Thus for all practical purposes the S-conjecture can be assumed to be true. Incidentally, equality holds in if and only if the matrix is an S-matrix. This would require mask ele- ments. A much more efficient design can be used if IT is a cyclic or circulant matrix, as in Fig. In this case suppose the first row of W is Wo. For example the first row of Fig. Ideally this mask of length 2n —1 is moved discretely or sieppeS across the framing mask in n steps.

A further mechanical simplification results if the mask is moved continuously. This introduces some distor- tion into the measurements; however, it is possible to exactly deter- mine the effect of this distortion and to compensate for it. The three known constructions of cyclic S-matrices are given in the Appendix.

Figure 3. This corresponds to a cyclic S-matrix con- structed from a maximal length shift-register sequence of length Encoding mask of fengih 2x — I — corresponding lo a cy- clic S-matrix of size x During operation of the instrument, the first slits are used for the first mask configuration. In the second configuration slits 2 to are exposed through the framing mask, and so on, until the mask is cycled into its last position in which slits to are ex- posed.

References for this section are Gottlieb and Harwit , Spatial multiplexing — a simple imager. For example, a television system consisting of TV camera, cable, and picture tube is an imager. So is an ordinary camera consisting of lens and photographic plate. In each case the original picture or scene is reproduced in some way. But both the TV camera and the photo- graphic plate contain a large number of detectors e. What if only one detector is available? In this case we could focus the radiation onto a plane and scan the image spot-by-spot with the detector. A Hadamard trantform imager often accomplishes the same task more efficiently.

If the scene is resolved into n separate spatial elements or picture elements , every mask configuration has n slits, each of which may be open or closed. After the radiation passing through one mask configuration has been measured, this configuration is replaced by another, and the pro- cess repeated until n measurements have been made. Thus Eqs. We conclude that all of the theory given in that section applies equally well to imagers, as long as we interpret t ,.

In particular, the fundamental principles , , apply. This is true no matter how the mask configurations are folded. An example of what S-matrix encoded imagers can do is shown in Fig. The image of a hand displayed by the imager constructed by Swift et al. The image was integrated over sixteen frames, each frame last- ing 25 msec. Bright portions indicate higher temperature or greater emissivi- ty. We see five fingers, somewhat cooler than the palm; a dark band which is the strap of a wrist watch; and a lighter band where a strip of forearm appears below the darker shirt sleeve on the extreme right.

But since Eqs. How the mask configuration is folded depends on the prime fac- torization of the number n. If n is a prime the configuration cannot be folded except into an irregular array. Let us illustrate with n — 15, using the cyclic S-matrix shown in Fig. A cyclic 15x15 S-matrix 5i5. Each row of the figure is a separate mask configuration, with 15 slits.

No matter how the configuration is folded, the first detector reading always gives 66 The Basic Theory Ch. Three ways of folding the first row of 5 5. How do we successively step through all the rows? A similar method works here. We use Fig. We construct the large array shown in Fig. The general method of construction should be obvious from this figure. The large array is used in conjunction with a 3x5 framing mask which exposes a different 3x5 subarray of Fig. Alternatively, ii move the array to the left for 5 steps, 3.

### Systematic errors in Hadamard transform optics

Thus in general ii requires a much smaller total number of elements. On the other hand the first method is simpler since the array only moves horizontally. Note that Fig. Unfortunately it is usually not possible to make the large array structurally self-supporting. For example the masks shown in Figs. It is therefore necessary to have some kind of gridwork of thin members to support otherwise isolated portions of the mask.

These supports should be kept as thin as possible so as to block the minimum amount of light. It is worth mentioning that there are other ways to fill in the large array of Fig. See MacWilliams and Sloane , Figs. This is because many commonly used infrared detectors exhibit increasing noise as the detec- tor size increases.

The increased noise then tends to just cancel out the multiplex advantage, and use of a multiplexed imager does not make sense under such conditions see the detailed analysis in the next chapter. In some applications, however, detector size is not an impor- tant factor in determining noise and a multiplexed imager then may be useful.

For spectrometers the restriction just mentioned does not hold, since the detector size need not be increased to accommodate a wider spectrum. A variety of multiplexed spectrometers have therefore found their way into common use see Chapter 7. A typical instrument is shown in Fig. There are several different cases to consider, since these instruments can be used in several different modes of operation.

This device is designed to provide both spatial and spectral information about the source. For example, one-dimensional spatial information can be obtained, and a separate spectrum computed for each entrance slit Phillips and Harwit Alternatively the instrument can be used with two-dimensional images, to obtain spectra for each element of a picture as in a color photograph , or else to obtain a series of two-dimensional pictures of a scene, each picture taken at a different wavelength Gottlieb , Harwit , , Swift et al.

Suppose there are m input slits and n exit slits in Fig. Then m different input mask configurations and n different exit mask configurations will be used, for a total of mn detector readings. Sup- pose 3. As usual this is simpler in matrix form. The average mean square error for this estimator, i. The basic equation describing an imaging specirometer neglecting errors. There are analogous statements to — for this instru- ment, as follows.

See line 8 of Table 3. See line 9 of Table 3. To derive - we make use of the tensor product of matrices. This nota- tion will also be used in the Appendix. For when is written out in full we get exactly the equations Since is of the same form as Eq. The average mean square error e is given by : 74 The Basic Theory Ch.

If this were not the case, we could in principle place a light pipe ahead of the entrance mask and scramble the light to homo- genize it. The function of the entrance mask is now not to provide spatial information but to increase the optical throughput of the instrument. Thus the instrument behaves as if it were a monochromator with a single entrance and exit slit Fig.

Such an instrument could be called a mock mono- chromator. See Harwit et al. These spectral components are imaged so that all the entering light would also pass through the exit framing mask if no encoding masks were present — i. A doubly multiplexed spectrometer which behaves like a mono- chromator. In this instrument the entrance mask moves while the exit mask is fixed.

Making the appropriate changes to Eq. No further matrix inversion is needed. Sidelobe characteristic of an S-matrix grill spectrometer. The S-matrix grill spectrometer has two desirable properties, i Each measurement selects one wavenumber which receives preferential treatment, while all other wavenumbers are attenuated by the same amount see Eq. In this class of instruments the S-matrix encoding appears to give the optimal signal-to-noise ratio, as we have just seen.

The grill spectrometers of 78 The Basic Theory Ch. Undesirable noise is introduced by these sidelobes if the measurements are used as the estimate of the spectrum. Even if the correct inverse matrix is used, as in Eq. A further advantage is that S-matrices can be readily constructed for apertures in a wide range of sizes see the Appendix. We also require that m divide n, and that S-matrices of orders m and n exist. Then the exit mask is stepped forward m places, exposing and again m measurements tjqi,.

This process is repeated until n meas- urements have been made. Equation is the basic equation describing this instrument. The average mean square error is then 80 The Basic Theory Ch. This instrument is described by Eq. How- ever, it is difficult to design a mechanism to select just the right combi- nation of entrance and exit mask configurations that are required for these measurements, and it is simpler to step both masks through their full range of positions.

Wo,n-l WlO ft ,, m — 1. In the presence of noise each element tOr. Since each oir. For this instrument we do not at present know the best masks V and W to use. By using more encoding slots than are necessary, the average mean square error may be reduced. Suppose that n spectral elements are to be estimated. Therefore 82 The Basic Theory Ch. This is known as the wide aperture advantage. In practice it means that m should always be made as large as possible, subject to the engineering limita- tions imposed by the deterioration of resolving power with increased aperture size. Sometimes, however, measurements may be accidentally omitted, or lost, resulting in fewer measurements than unknowns.

To guard against such problems one often takes more measurements than unknowns; this also reduces the mean square error. In this sec- tion we describe the best estimate for the unknowns in such a situation. We first give the definition of and then say how to find it in the most common 3. The proof of is easily obtained by modifying the proof of see for example Raghavarao , p.

This analysis shows that the larger the number of measurements m , the smaller is the mean square error. Of course this assumes that an unlimited amount of time is available for making the measurements. The situation changes if all m measurements must be made within a given time t. Now increasing m increases cr and the final SNR will be unchanged. The difficulty is that there is no way of registering a negative signal with an ordinary light detector.

But if two detectors are used, a Hadamard mask can be incor- porated into a practical instrument, as illustrated for example in Fig. The encoding mask is used more or less like an optical beam- splitter c. We now describe the optimal way to recover the spectrum from the detector readings. First an example. Here t - nil. This result is almost identical to what would be obtained by simply using the difference between the two detector readings for the values of 7ji in Eq. Referring to Table 3.

One of the main differences is that the latter encode radiation by trigonometric continuous functions, whereas in Hadamard instruments piecewise constant discontinuous functions are used. Assuming that ipo is known it can be measured directly , we define 7? To evaluate in practice we approximate it by a sum. First consider e b-matnx encoding. As we see from Fig. In contrast the Hadamard matrix encoding does not waste this light. Instead, see Eq. Neither do the rows of an S-matrix. In contrast, the rows of a Hadamard matrix are orthogonal.

The lack of orthogonality makes the system more vulnerable to noise, and the performance of the instru- ment suffers. We should remember, however, that this display is not the same as the spectrum, because of the smearing effect due to finite entrance apertures, diffraction and aberrations.

Similar smearing effects occur in inter- ferometers. Such a compari- son is difficult and depends strongly on the individual instruments. We 92 The Basic Theory Ch. Further- more these comparisons have neglected many other practical criteria, and we do not claim overall superiority for either Fourier or Hadamard transform instruments. However, when a doubly encoded spectrometer is compared with an interferometer in which the entrance aperture has been increased so as to have the same area as that of the spectrometer, the interferometer has a clear advan- tage.

If there are m entrance slits the signal-to-noise ratio is then increased by a factor proportional to yfm ll see Table 3. On the other hand, if the entrance aperture in a Michelson interferometer is increased in area hy a factor of m, so is the signal and the signal-to-noise ratio. Ideally, there- fore, they should all be modulated in the same way in synchronism.

To a first approximation this instrument behaves like an interferometer — see Eq. The major difference is that half the light is lost in the mock interferometer when radiation enters through the Ronchi gfid- Therefore the average mean square error e is roughly four times that of the interferometer. Therefore if the area of the entrance aperture is increased by a factor of n, so is the signal-to-noise ratio. Rotating grid collimator. They measure the change in direction of different wavelengths of a light beam dispersed by a prism or grating and record the intensity at different deflections.

A closely related direction measuring device is the rotating grid collimator Fig. This instrument is based on the same principle as the mock interferometer. It is not clear whether the modulation scheme used in this instrument is optimal, or whether a better design for the grids can be found. Nevertheless, this instrument has played an important role in X- ray astronomy, since until a few years ago it was the only method known for locating X-ray sources.

Nearly all the X-ray sources discovered to date have been located by rocket- and satellite-carried col- limators. Recently, however. X-ray tele. Schnopper and Delvaille , Giacconi and Gursky But is this really true? If, for example, one instrument required a detector with a much larger bandwidth than the others, the detector noise would be correspondingly larger. Intuitively one feels that this should not be so for instruments measuring the same number n of spectral components, and that such instruments should have similar noise characteristics.

This conclusion is verified by an analysis given by Treffers Since this is the same figure we obtained — see Eq. Blachman has made a controversial comparison of the merits of Fourier and Hadamard techniques for the decomposition and reconstruction of arbitrary signals see the comments of Harmuth et al. While we do not wish to enter this debate. The time evolution of the density matrix we can also describe by applying an unitary. Devereaux,3,4 and J. In the orbital space, the LOs should come from a unitary transformation of the COs through a localization procedure. One reason why it's not easy only in special cases to express your stochastic process as unitary transformation is that the transition matrix needs not be invertible and if it is, it is not necessarily stochastic matrix , while unitaries are always invertible and describe the legitimate quantum transformation.

The real-space resolution allows one to position the impurities at the boundary or bulk of the sample and to study screening effects due to edge Abstract APS Because the state vectors of isolated systems can be changed in entangled states by processes in other isolated systems, keeping only the density matrix fixed, it is proposed to give up the description of physical states in terms of ensembles of state vectors with various probabilities, relying only on density matrices. However, the code also provides the tools to work directly with multi-qubit states as an alternative to the density matrix description.

Let's look at a density matrix for a quantum system which is well described by a basis with three states. We generally have one outer loop in which the charge density is optimized, and one inner loop in which the wavefunctions are optimized. The simplest one is the mean field approximation.

The dominating short-range correlations in these systems are described by an unitary transformation in the The equality 5. The density matrix is also a crucial tool in quantum decoherence theory. The second approximation applies not only to It turns out that the density matrix captures all statistical information about the mixed state.

In the quantum Two quantum states are equivalent under local unitary transformations. A matrix is a specialized 2-D array that retains its 2-D nature through operations. But if possible we want to have lagrangian density even under both parity and time-reversal, so that parity and time-reversal are conserved. In terms of the matrix Bogoliubov transformation: The conditions is equivalent to the unitarity conditions between matrices A and B.

We note that this is always possible because the density matrix is Hermitian but that the required transformation will be time-dependent.

In QuTiP the function qutip. U, which diagonalises it locally. First, we consider the measurement process. Lomonaco Jr. In this case, the density matrix is given by equation 4 and is not necessarily diagonal. These approaches, however, cannot serve our purpose. Arul Lakshminarayan 1Udaysinh T. For a given 3 by 3 matrix, we find its eigenvalues and determine whether it is diagonalizable. Open quantum systems Operator-sum representation Trace preservation Quantum operation axioms Freedom in the operator-sum representation Density Matrix and Trace Operator Quantum states can be expressed as a density matrix Unitary operations on a density This mixed state is the reduced density matrix.

The differences are explained by the existence of a moderately strong interaction that breaks unitary symmetry. This unitary transformation density matrix simply reduces the length of this vector, along with the net magnetic dipole of the sample. In the traditional procedures, such as in the Boys and the Ruedenberg prescriptions, one minimizes a target function of only occupied COs, rendering the virtual COs irrelevant.

The workspace density Transformation of Dirac spinors Comparing 48 with the original Dirac-equation shows that the term [. Pure states are defined by the wave functions and mixed states—by the density matrix. Note: time-reversal operator must be antiunitary: First, the Hamiltonian was given by means of a unitary transformation into a diagonal form.

The dynamics of the system is given by a unitary matrix acting on the states as.
