Title: Generalization of Heisenberg uncertainty principle for strong interactions

Abstract

We propose a unified form of possible generalizations of Heisenberg uncertainty principle for strong interactions, which is based on the product of the envelope of the dynamical equations representing wave packets under conditions of mutual overlapping and nonlocal non-Hamiltonian forces. For conventional associative products of operators, we recover the conventional Heisenberg relations for particles under long range electromagnetic interactions and no appreciable wave overlapping. For nonassociative Lie-admissible products of operators we have (a) a number of generalizations of Heisenberg's equations of increasing algebraic complexity; (b) the capability of representing a correspondingly progressive increase of conditions of wave overlapping and nonlocal, non-Hamiltonian forces; and (c) a corresponding, rather inevitable sequence of generalizations of Heisenberg uncertainty relations. All these possibilities are expressed in a unified way by postulating generalized uncertainty relations whereby the product of operators is that of the envelope of the dynamical equations. For conditions of minimal wave overlapping under strong interactions, such as in the nuclear structure, we expect a very small nonlocal non-Hamiltonian component of the force and a minimal departure from Heisenberg principle. For progressive increase of wave overlappings, such as in the structure of hadrons, or in the structure of stars undergoing gravitational collapse, we expectmore » a corresponding progressive replacement of Heisenberg principle with more general principles. The problem of the experimental resolution of the exact or only approximate validity of Heisenberg principle under strong interactions is considered for a more detailed treatment in a separate paper.« less
