In classical mechanics potential is defined for conservative forces and dissipative forces such as friction don't have potential. In quantum mechanics, Schrödinger equation which includes a potential, deals with problems. How can one treat the dissipative forces in quantum mechanics?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
