  • Particle mixing phenomena such as {ital K}{sup 0}, neutrino, or axion-photon oscillations are cast in second-quantized form. This allows one to discuss effects involving the quantum statistics of the particles. In particular, one can understand neutrino oscillations in the case of degeneracy or the final-state distribution of occupation numbers in highly occupied states of light bosons.
  • We study the spectral properties of the evolution operator of a quantum particle subject to a space-periodic time-dependent potential. Two qualitatively different regimes of the system dynamics are compared: case (i), when the spreading of the wave packet is asymptotically ballistic; and case (ii), when the wave packet spreads diffusively. As time increases, the spectrum is shown to approach Poisson statistics in case (i) and circular unitary ensemble statistics in case (ii). A scaling relation for the velocity and curvature distributions of the spectral bands are found. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • BS>It is shown that non-relativistic quantum mechanics can be treated as a kind of relativistic statistical theory, which describes the indeterministic motion of classical particles. The theory is relativistic in the sense that the relativistic notion of the state and two-time equations of motion are used. The principles and relations of quantum mechanics are obtained from the principles of statistics and those of classical mechanics. (auth)
