We show that methods currently exploited in quantum mechanics, like the evolution operator technique, can be employed to deal with the motion of bodies subject to apparent forces. The method we propose allows the inclusion of velocity-dependent forces of friction type and offers the possibility of developing fast and reliable algorithms for numerical computations.
