Correlation between Diffusion Equation and Schrödinger Equation
Author(s) Takahisa Okino*

The well-known Schrd?inger equation is reasonably derived from the well-known diffusion equation. In the present study, the imaginary time is incorporated into the diffusion equation for understanding of the collision problem between two micro particles. It is revealed that the diffusivity corresponds to the angular momentum operator in quantum theory. The universal diffusivity expression, which is valid in an arbitrary material, will be useful for understanding of diffusion problems.
