nonrelativistic quantum mechanics

[¦nän‚rel·ə·tə′vis·tik ′kwän·təm mi′kan·iks]
(quantum mechanics)
The modern theory of matter and its interaction with radiation, applicable to systems of material particles which move slowly compared to the speed of light, which are neither created nor destroyed, and whose internal structure (except for spin) either does not change or is irrelevant to the description of the system.

Ghirardi, Rimini, and Weber's idea (which is formulated for nonrelativistic quantum mechanics) goes like this: The wave function of an N particle system
Schrodinger quantum field theory, that is, second-quantized nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, provides us with an explicit expression of inertial particle spatial coordinates [x.sup.i] at time [t.sub.0] in terms of inertial background spatial coordinates [z.sup.i], thereby making manifest the deep conceptual difference between the two.
The obvious analogy with nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and the well-established physical interpretation of non-commuting quantum observables make this, in our view, the most natural and straightforward assumption.
The idea of a quantum geometry is certainly not new; however, here we are talking about a picture of that quantum space completely at the level of simple, textbook, so-called nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. Moreover, we will justify it and illustrate explicitly how the classical Newtonian picture is retrieved in the classical approximation.
