Solution for assignment 37 Poisson Brackets (21a) Let us consider functions g = g ( q k , p k , t ) and h = h ( q k , p k , t ). The Poisson bracket is defined by [ g, h ] def = X k ± ∂g ∂q k ∂h ∂p k - ∂h ∂q k ∂g ∂p k ! . The properties of the assignment are shown in the following: 1. Resulting in the definition of the total time derivative: dg dt = [ g, H ] + ∂g ∂t = X k ± ∂g ∂q k ∂H ∂p k - ∂H ∂q k ∂g ∂p k ! + ∂g ∂t = X k ± ∂g ∂q k ˙ q k + ∂g ∂p k ˙ p k ! + ∂g ∂t . 2. Using ∂q j /∂p k = 0: ˙ q j = [ q j , H ] = X k ± ∂q j ∂q k ∂H ∂p k - ∂H ∂q k ∂q j ∂p k ! = X k δ jk ˙ q k = ˙ q j , 3. Using ∂p j /∂q k = 0: ˙ p j = [ p j , H ] = X k ± ∂p j ∂q k ∂H ∂p k - ∂H ∂q k ∂p j ∂p k ! = X k δ jk ˙ p k = ˙ p j , 4. Commutators of generalized coordinates and momenta: [ q i , q j ] = X k ± ∂q i ∂q k ∂q j ∂p k - ∂q j ∂q k ∂q i ∂p k ! = 0 as ∂q j /∂p k = 0 and ∂q i /∂p k = 0. Similarly [ p i , p j ] = X k ± ∂p i ∂q k ∂p j ∂p k - ∂p j ∂q k ∂p i ∂p k ! = 0 , while [ q i , p j ] = X k ± ∂q i ∂q k ∂p j ∂p k - ∂p j ∂q k ∂q i ∂p k ! = X k ( δ ik δ j k - 0) = δ ij . (21b) Angular momentum commutator: [ x i , L j ] = X k X l X m ± jlm ± ∂x i ∂x k ( x l p m ) ∂p k - ( x l p m ) ∂x k ∂x i ∂p k ! = X k X l X m ± jlm δ ik x l δ mk = X l X m ± jlm δ im x l = X l ± jli x l = X l ± ijl x l .
