THE ADIABATIC THEOREM AND BERRYS PHASE
Journal or Book Title
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS
A study is presented of Berry’s observation that when a quantum‐mechanical system is transported on a closed adiabatic journey, a topological phase arises in addition to the usual dynamical phase expected from the adiabatic theorem. Consequences are explored in the case of a simple magnetic moment–magnetic field interaction and are shown to lead, among other things, to Dirac’s famous relation between electric and magnetic charges.
