## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a question about time dependence in the different pictures of QM. In the Schrodinger Picture, I've read that the time dependence is in the state vector, but one can construct Hamiltonians and other operators that are time dependent in the Schrodinger Picture. For instance, one can construct a time dependent potential in Schrodinger wave mechanics, and one would not be using the Interaction Picture. (But the equation would probably have to be solved numerically.)

Then could states in the Heisenberg Picture be constructed so that they are time dependent as well without invoking the Interaction Picture? I would think it's possible, but I assume it would usually lead to a difficult problem to solve and rarely done. Are there any references that talk about handling such cases?
