VOL. 39 | 2001 Quantum mechanics as an intuitionistic form of classical mechanics
Murray Adelman, John V. Corbett

Editor(s) Andrew Hassell, Alexander Isaev, Adam Sikora


Intuitionistic real numbers are constructed as sheaves on the state space of the Schrodinger representation of a CCRalgebra with a finite number of degrees of freedom. These numbers are used as the values of position and momentum variables that obey Newton's equations of motion. Heisenberg's operator equations of motion are shown to give rise to numerical equations that, on a family of open subsets of state space, are local approximations to Newton's equations of motion for the intuitionistically valued variables.
