Title: Newton-Leibniz integration for ket-bra operators in quantum mechanics and derivation of entangled state representations

Abstract

Newton-Leibniz integration rule only applies to commuting functions of continuum variables, while operators made of Dirac's symbols (ket versus bra, e.g., |q><q| of continuous parameter q) in quantum mechanics are usually not commutative. Therefore, integrations over the operators of type |><| cannot be directly performed by Newton-Leibniz rule. We invented an innovative technique of integration within an ordered product (IWOP) of operators that made the integration of non-commutative operators possible. The IWOP technique thus bridges this mathematical gap between classical mechanics and quantum mechanics, and further reveals the beauty and elegance of Dirac's symbolic method and transformation theory. Various applications of the IWOP technique, including constructing the entangled state representations and their applications, are presented.
