    In this article we examine a Generalized Uncertainty Principle which differs from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle by terms linear and quadratic in particle momenta, as proposed by the authors in an earlier paper. ...
  • Balasubramanian, Venkat; Das, Saurya; Vagenas, Elias C. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and AstronomyUniversity of Western OntarioUniversity of LethbridgeKuwait University, 2015-12-16)
    In this work we explore the self-adjointness of the GUP-modified momentum and Hamiltonian oper- ators over different domains. In particular, we utilize the theorem by von-Newmann for symmetric operators in order to ...
