Non-Linear Quantum Mechanics  

In General > s.a. brownian motion; Newton-Schrödinger Equation; schrödinger equation [including WKB].
* Motivation: Include as part of the dynamical evolution the transformation associated with the wave-function collapse.
* Feature: Superluminal propagation, a generic phenomenon in a large class on non-dissipative quantum theories.
