Minimizing the uncertainty about the uncertainty principle
Author(s): G. K. Vemulapalli; A. S. Marathay

Paper Abstract

Uncertainty principle forms a crucial part of quantum theory and wave optics. By using the propagation of a scalar, 3-D wave packet with and without dispersion as a heuristic device, we examine different aspects of the principle as it applies to transverse and longitudinal dispersion, and to time-dependent and stationary states.
