Any quantum state can be described by a vortex, which is mathematically a multi-vector and physically a united-measure. When the vortex formulation of quantum physics is introduced, Hamilton principle keeps its core position in physical analysis. While the global characteristics are described by Lagranrian function for dynamics and double complex core function for stable states, Schrödinger equation and gauge symmetries reveal local characteristics. The vortex-based physics provides a new unified understanding of wave-particle duality and uncertainty, quantum entanglement and teleportation, as well as quantum information and computation, with setting discrete quantum states into continuous space-time for keeping concordance of methodology in processing micro-particle and macro-galaxy. Two fundamental experiments are suggested to correct and verify the physical formulation.
