I have been taught two version of the Similarity tranformations on my course, one is from Hamiltonian mechanics, the other is from group theory, I understand neither, all I know is it changes basis, but what can I use it for? I would really appreciate if someone can explain it to me. Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
