Mathematics and Physics Joint Seminar


Non-Relativistic Fermionic Quantum Mechanics (Cracking Schrödinger Nutshell)

Young Lee

Department of Physics, Texas Southern University

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 2:30 pm – 3:30 pmTexas Southern University Science Building, Room 146


The non-relativistic Schrodinger equation was formulated nearly 90 years ago and has been successfully applied to various quantum mechanical systems across multiple scientific fields producing the main developments to quantum theory. The primary importance of Schrodinger’s equation arises in the implementation of the analogue of Newton’s law and continuation of classical mechanics. In the development of relativistic quantum physics, Dirac expanded the theory combining Einstein’s special relativity, quantum mechanics and the so- called fermion particle of half integer spin. This was the first theory to consistently account for special relativity within the context of quantum mechanics. In this paper, we formulate a novel mathematical approach to solve Schrodinger’s equation within the context of particle and wave theory. In our examination, we present a similar, yet unique model of fermion structure, which is consistent with the present day Dirac description. We will introduce and discuss the 1 dimensional structure of a Harmonic oscillator and free particle fermionic state. Additionally, the 3+1 dimensional structure of the fermionic state will be briefly outlined. Finally, we will compare our model with Dirac’s theory for further study. This model is not Lorentz invariant; however, the connection of classical and non-relativistic quantum theory will be explained. We will also talk about the Hydrogen atom within the framework of bound state, fermionic quantum physics.

Kazakos, Demetrios

Education and Training

  • Diploma in Electrical, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from National Polytechnic University of Athens, Greece ,1967
  • Master of Arts in Electrical Engineering, Princeton University ,1970
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California , 1973


Demetrios Kazakos was born in Greece. He is a United States Citizen. He graduated from the National Technology University of Athens, with a degree in Electrical, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. He received a MasterA~[Cent]s Degree from the Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University. During his study at Princeton University he was an Alcoa Fellow. He subsequently completed his Ph.D. studies at the University of Southern California, where he specialized in Statistical Communication Theory. For a two year period, was a Postdoctoral Research Associate of the National Research Council at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas. At that time NASA was involved in the development of the Earth Resources Technology Satellite, and he was employed in the creation of novel statistical data processing algorithms for multi-spectral image data obtained by the satellite. He developed real time estimation procedures that performed well without any loss in performance, completely alleviating the problem of storage of huge amounts of data. His statistical processing algorithms were selected for the final implementation of the Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment (LACIE).

Following his postdoctoral appointment, he accepted the position of Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the State University of New York at Buffalo. His research on Statistical Data Processing for Remote Sensing continued, and he received funding from the National Science Foundation. At the same time, he developed many contacts at Rome Laboratory, a major research and development center of the U.S. Air Force, and he obtained funded contracts on studies of signal processing for radar systems. Later he moved to the position of Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Virginia. He continued a high level of research activity through publications and funded contracts and grants. His funding sources have been: National Science Foundation Office of Naval Research Rome Laboratory Air Force Office of Scientific Research Army Laboratory Private Industry. In 1985 he was promoted to Professor of Electrical Engineering, with a joint tenured appointment to the Department of Mathematics ,at the University of Virginia.

In the early 80A~[Cent]s the European Community started various funded research projects to consortia of companies and universities of member countries. In addition to his research activities in the United States, he became active in European research activities. He started an affiliation with HITEC, INC., a Greek high technology firm involved in computer-related research and development projects. Typical projects have been:

Computer Integrated Manufacturing; development of simulation tools and of imaging techniques; Robotics and stereo vision; Biomedical image processing projects, e.g., automated recognition and counting of blood cells. Development of specialized software for various information technology applications in automation. From 1983 to 1993 he was an Associate Director for Research and Development of HITEC, devoting about 4 months per year to this position. In 1985, together with another colleague, he started the U.S. branch of HITEC, INC,of which he became President in 1993, a position he maintained until 2001. This branch has been active in research projects funded by defense contracts, some of them having a CLASSIFIED designation. He received Secret security clearance.

He has been very active in various IEEE professional groups, in organizing conference sessions, in participating in technical committees, and presenting papers in conferences. In 1992 he was elected IEEE Fellow for his research achievements in the areas of multi-user communication systems and statistical communication theory. Also, in 1992, he was named the Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communication Society. In 1995, he was the Technical Program Chair of the GLOBECOM 95 Communication Theory Conference. In 1999-2000, he was the Technical Program Chair for the IEEE Wireless Communication and Networking Conference of 2000 (WCNC 2000). This is the major wireless conference, with 850 attendees and most wireless communications companies in attendance.

November 2007: After one years efforts, Demetrios Kazakos managed to secure major funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Under his leadership and initiatives, Texas Southern University was designated as a co-leader of a National Center of Excellence Consortium in Transportation Security, funded at $72 Million, over four years, by the U.S.Department of Homeland Security, starting in the Spring of 2008. The total amount brought to TSU, funded by the U.S.Dept. of Homeland Security, due to the individual efforts of Dr.Kazakos for 2008-2012 is:$72/7=$10.28Million(7member consortium). Unfortunately, the U.S.Department of Homeland Security reduced the amount to TSU to only $200,000.

September 10, 2008: After Demetrios Kazakos, as Dean, changed the leadership of NASAs University Research Center, the new team was successful in the competitive renewal. Among 55 proposals, TSUs proposal was the second best among the 7 successful ones. The Center is funded for 5 years at id=”mce_marker” M/year. Demetrios Kazakos is Co-PI. The name is: Center for Bio-Nanotechnology and Environmental Research.

See also items 24-29 in the Grants and Contracts segment. The total funding brought to Texas Southern University by the individual efforts of Dr. D.Kazakos and from all external sources for 2006-2012 is: $10.71 Million. Included in the total is the recent $5 million CREST Center on Complex Networks, fully credited to Dr.Kazakoss actions.
