Torsion and geometrostasis in nonlinear sigma models

- E. Braaten, T. Curtright, C. Zachos
- Physics
- 28 October 1985

Abstract We discuss some general effects produced by adding Wess-Zumino terms to the actions of nonlinear sigma models, an addition which may be made if the underlying field manifold has appropriate… Expand

DEFORMATION QUANTIZATION: QUANTUM MECHANICS LIVES AND WORKS IN PHASE-SPACE

- C. Zachos
- Physics
- 12 October 2001

Wigner's quasi-probability distribution function in phase-space is a special (Weyl) representation of the density matrix. It has been useful in describing quantum transport in quantum optics; nuclear… Expand

Features of time-independent Wigner functions

- T. Curtright, D. Fairlie, C. Zachos
- Physics
- 25 November 1997

The Wigner phase-space distribution function provides the basis for Moyal{close_quote}s deformation quantization alternative to the more conventional Hilbert space and path integral quantizations.… Expand

Classical and quantum Nambu mechanics

- T. Curtright, C. Zachos
- Physics, Mathematics
- 20 December 2002

The classical and quantum features of Nambu mechanics are analyzed and fundamental issues are resolved. The classical theory is reviewed and developed utilizing varied examples. The quantum theory is… Expand

Quantum mechanics in phase space : an overview with selected papers

- C. Zachos, D. Fairlie, T. Curtright
- Political Science
- 1 December 2005

In addition to the presentation speeches and the Nobel lectures, these volumes also provide brief biographies and the Nobel laureates' own accounts of their many years of preparation and effort that… Expand

Trigonometric structure constants for new infinite-dimensional algebras

- D. Fairlie, P. Fletcher, C. Zachos
- Physics
- 16 February 1989

Abstract Novel infinite-dimensional algebras of the Virasoro/Kac-Moody/Floratos-Iliopoulos type are introduced, which involve trigonometric functions in their structure constants. They are then… Expand

Ternary Virasoro-Witt Algebra

- T. Curtright, D. Fairlie, C. Zachos
- Physics, Mathematics
- 23 June 2008

Abstract A 3-bracket variant of the Virasoro–Witt algebra is constructed through the use of su ( 1 , 1 ) enveloping algebra techniques. The Leibniz rules for 3-brackets acting on other 3-brackets in… Expand

Infinite Dimensional Algebras and a Trigonometric Basis for the Classical Lie Algebras

- D. Fairlie, P. Fletcher, C. Zachos
- Mathematics
- 1 May 1990

This paper explores features of the infinite‐dimensional algebras that have been previously introduced. In particular, it is shown that the classical simple Lie algebras (AN, BN, CN, DN) may be… Expand

Asymptotic analysis of the monopole structure

- T. Kirkman, C. Zachos
- Physics
- 15 August 1981

We analyze the behavior of the magnetic-monopole equations as a function of the ratio of Higgs-scalar-to-vector-meson mass M/sub H//M/sub W/. For very small M/sub H//M/sub W/, we find that the mass… Expand

Generating All Wigner Functions

- T. Curtright, T. Uematsu, C. Zachos
- Mathematics, Physics
- 15 November 2000

In the context of phase-space quantization, matrix elements and observables result from integration of c-number functions over phase space, with Wigner functions serving as the quasiprobability… Expand
