I would like to know more about how Heisenberg developed his matrix mechanics.He wanted to represent the quantum state in terms of observable quantities such as spectral frequencies and intensities,rather than via the more abstract wave function of Schrodinger.But how did he assemble the arrays of numbers that Born eventually recognised as non-commuting matrices ?.Can someone tell me or refer me to an easily understandable review or paper ?.I guess I would find Heisenbergs original papers too difficult.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
