If an integrable classical Hamiltonian H describing bound motion depends on parameters which are changed very slowly then the adiabatic theorem states that the action variables I of the motion are conserved. Here the fate of the angle variables is analysed. Because of the unavoidable arbitrariness in their definition, angle variables belonging to distinct initial and final Hamiltonians cannot generally be compared. However, they can be compared if the Hamiltonian is taken on a closed excursion…

The Adiabatic Limit for Multidimentsional Hamiltonian Systems

We study some properties of multidimensional Hamiltonian systems in the adiabatic limit. Using the properties of the PoincareCartan invariant we show that in the integrable case conservation of

Classical non-adiabatic angles

If a family of tori in phase space is driven by a time-dependent Hamiltonian flow in such a way as to return after some time to the original family, there generally results a shift in the angle

Entropy nonconservation and boundary conditions for Hamiltonian dynamical systems.

It is shown that the boundary conditions for a tunneling quantum system become the criteria for entropy preservation in the classical limit, highlighting how boundary effects drastically change the nature of a system.

The connection whose holonomy is the classical adiabatic angles of Hannay and Berry and its generalization to the non-integrable case

We show how averaging defines an Ehresmann connection whose holonomy is the classical adiabatic angles which Hannay defined for families of completely integrable systems. The averaging formula we

The geometric phase for chaotic unitary families

We consider the geometric phase for a family of quantum/classical Hamiltonians in which the effect of changing parameters is simply to induce unitary/canonical transformations. In this case the

Analysis of the classical adiabatic motion of charged particles in strong magnetic fields exhibits an anholonomic phase similar to Berry's phase and the phase discovered in a general context by Hannay, which leads to new insight into guiding center theory.

Topology and Holonomy in Discrete-time Quantum Walks

We present a research article which formulates the milestones for the understanding and characterization of holonomy and topology of a discrete-time quantum walk architecture, consisting of a unitary

Geometric Phase for Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians and Its Holonomy Interpretation

For an arbitrary possibly non-Hermitian matrix Hamiltonian H, that might involve exceptional points, we construct an appropriate parameter space M and the lines bundle L^n over M such that the



Classical adiabatic angles and quantal adiabatic phase

A semiclassical connection is established between quantal and classical properties of a system whose Hamiltonian is slowly cycled by varying its parameters round a circuit. The quantal property is a

A quantal system in an eigenstate, slowly transported round a circuit C by varying parameters R in its Hamiltonian Ĥ(R), will acquire a geometrical phase factor exp{iγ(C)} in addition to the familiar

Holonomy, the Quantum Adiabatic Theorem, and Berry's Phase

It is shown that the "geometrical phase factor" recently found by Berry in his study of the quantum adiabatic theorem is precisely the holonomy in a Hermitian line bundle since the adiabatic theorem

The principles of inertial rotation-sensing using ring gyroscopes are examined by applying the method of adiabatic invariance. The spinning-wheel gyroscope, the ring-laser gyro and devices containing
