Quantum LC - circuits with diffusive modification of the continuity equation

Source: arXiv


Proofs are given that the quantum-mechanical description of the LC-circuit with a time dependent external source can be readily established by starting from a general discretization rule of the electric charge. For this purpose one resorts to an arbitrary but integer-dependent real function F(n) instead of n. This results in a nontrivial generalization of the discrete time dependent Schrodinger-equation established before via F(n)=n. Such generalization leads to site-dependent hopping amplitudes as well as to diffusive modification of the continuity equation. One shows, in particular, that there are firm supports concerning rational multiples of the elementary electric charge.
