Hi, I was wondering if someone could point me to a textbook or easy to read paper (or website) that briefly describes/proves the differences here. What I mean is if I do classical (continuous energies) statistical mechanics where my initial state is a volume (greater than or equal to h-bar) and do classical evolution I get a certain theory. What predictions does this make that differ from quantum mechanics which is not simply a hidden-variable theory with incomplete information of the hidden variables. Thanks for the help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
