Abstract

Wigner quantum mechanics is reformulated in a discrete momentum space and analyzed within a Monte Carlo approach for solving integral equations and thus associated with a particle picture. General quantum phenomena may thereby be modeled in terms of quasi-particles involving attributes such as drift, generation, sign, and annihilation on a phase space grid. The model is examined in an ultimate regime, where classical and quantum dynamics become equivalent. The peculiarities of the transport in this asymptotic regime are analyzed within simulations, benchmarking the behavior of the Wigner function.
