Dissipative Forces and Quantum Mechanics
Eck, John S.; Thompson, W. J.
American Journal of Physics, 45, 2, 161-163, Feb 77
Shows how to include the dissipative forces of classical mechanics in quantum mechanics by the use of non-Hermetian Hamiltonians. The Ehrenfest theorem for such Hamiltonians is derived, and simple examples which show the classical correspondences are given. (MLH)
