Evolution of uniformly accelerated system

  1. Mar 20, 2010 #1
    Consider system with Hamiltonian H. If this system is attached to inertial observer its
    evolution is described by unitary operator: [tex] U_t = \exp(t H) [/tex] where t is time
    measured by inertial observer. What if the observer accelerates (with constant
    acceleration in its comoving frame). Is it stil true that [tex] U_\tau = \exp(\tau H) [/tex]
    wher [tex]\tau [/tex] is time measured by accelerating observer (the length of its
    world line). Is hamiltonian idependent of type of observer whom we attache the system to?
