why is the time evolution operator have the form the an imaginary exponential with the hamiltonian in it. I have read some texts on quantum mechanics and so far none of them have given me an explanation for that. If some one can provide me with a proof to it or a website that has the proof I would gladly appriciate it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
