Abstract

Starting from the Hamilton-Jacobi equation describing a classical ensemble, one may infer a quantum dynamics using the principle of maximum uncertainty. That procedure requires an appropriate measure of uncertainty: Such a measure is constructed here from physically motivated constraints. It leads to a unique single parameter extension of the classical dynamics that is equivalent to the usual linear quantum mechanics.
