I was thinking about the various complementary parameters in quantum physics. I'm curious if anyone is aware of a "complete" list of such measurements or qualities that has been compiled in one source, based on current knowledge.
Fair enough. I was aware of the various forms position/momenta complimentarity. But I'd recently read a passage where Lee Smolin referred to aspects of time and space having a similar complementary relationship, and it got me thinking about the general concept.There are an infinite number of such pairs, so nobody has considered it a good use of their time to write them all down.
Yes, I put "in a sense" in at the last moment, knowing that this is PF and there will be all sorts of tricky questions, like whether an anti-commutation relation is also "complementary" :)Atyy is absolutely right - I might even drop the "in a sense". Once you define the commutator algebra, you have defined the theory. That's both its power, and the reason you can't write it all down.
