182), the constant /31l is therefore the total energy E and, if the system is conservative, we obtain S (q, P, t) = W (q, P) - E t, H (qi' and ~~) = E. 191) 14. Propagation Equation of Geometric Optics So far, the assumption that matter is concentrated at certain points in space has underlain our description of particle mechanics and our objective has been essentially to follow the movement of these point particles in time. Wave mechanics rejects the concept of localization in favor of that of continuous systems.

Wave mechanics, and more generally speaking, quantum mechanics, of which the former constitutes a special description, have so far not been faulted in their description of microscopic physical systems, from molecules to systems of the scale of elementary particles. Yet the theoretical foundations have continued to inspire numerous theoretical works and different interpretations. The probabilistic interpretation is today the most generally accepted interpretation amongst users of this new mechanics, as we hope to show in this chapter.
