    Hi..looking at wikipedia


    what's all that stuff about q-derivative q-factorial and so on and how could it be used in QM ??.

    Also due to Uncertainty principle.. is jus the Quantum phase space of q's and p's a Non-commutative version of our classical world ?? i mean if you can describe QM by using some non-conmutative mathematics-geommetry with elements

    [tex] AB-BA=\hbar [A,B] [/tex] the problem is how do you define for Non-commutative Algebras the measure

    [tex] dqdp [/tex] (infintesimal group element so they don't commute) or obtain a Matrix representation of the Group (using matrices)
