A new notation for quantum mechanics

  • P. A. M. Dirac (a1)
Abstract

In mathematical theories the question of notation, while not of primary importance, is yet worthy of careful consideration, since a good notation can be of great value in helping the development of a theory, by making it easy to write down those quantities or combinations of quantities that are important, and difficult or impossible to write down those that are unimportant. The summation convention in tensor analysis is an example, illustrating how specially appropriate a notation can be.
