Group Theory of Covariant Harmonic Oscillators
Kim, Y. S.; Noz, Marilyn E.
American Journal of Physics, 46, 5, 480-3, May 78
A simple and concrete example for illustrating the properties of noncompact groups is presented. The example is based on the covariant harmonic-oscillator formalism in which the relativistic wave functions carry a covariant-probability interpretation. This can be used in a group theory course for graduate students who have some background in quantum mechanics and special relativity. (BB)
