Schrödinger Equations and Diffusion Theory addresses the question "What is the Schrödinger equation?" in terms of diffusion processes, and shows that the Schrödinger equation and diffusion equations in duality are equivalent. In turn, Schrödinger's conjecture of 1931 is solved. The theory of diffusion processes for the Schrödinger equation tell us that we must go further into the theory of systems of (infinitely) many interacting quantum (diffusion) particles.

The method of relative entropy and the theory of transformations enable us to construct severely singular diffusion processes which appear to be equivalent to Schrödinger equations.

The theory of large deviations and the propagation of chaos of interacting diffusion particles reveal the statistical mechanical nature of the Schrödinger equation, namely, quantum mechanics.

The text is practically self-contained and requires only an elementary knowledge of probability theory at the graduate level.

## Abstract

Schrödinger Equations and Diffusion Theory addresses the question "What is the Schrödinger equation?" in terms of diffusion processes, and shows that the Schrödinger equation and diffusion equations in duality are equivalent. In turn, Schrödinger's conjecture of 1931 is solved. The theory of diffusion processes for the Schrödinger equation tell us that we must go further into the theory of systems of (infinitely) many interacting quantum (diffusion) particles.

The method of relative entropy and the theory of transformations enable us to construct severely singular diffusion processes which appear to be equivalent to Schrödinger equations.

The theory of large deviations and the propagation of chaos of interacting diffusion particles reveal the statistical mechanical nature of the Schrödinger equation, namely, quantum mechanics.

The text is practically self-contained and requires only an elementary knowledge of probability theory at the graduate level.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
