Real vector state functions are proposed for a quantum mechanics analysis of probability density, dispersion, probability current density, conservation of mass, orthonormality, interference, and the Hamiltonian. The conclusions are equivalent to those of the usual representations and hold the promise that quantum mechanics may be described with real vector state functions instead of complex functions and the imaginary number.
Keywords: quantum theory in terms of real vector state function, probability current, orthonormality, Hamiltonian function
