We consider spin system defined on the coadjoint orbit with noncompact symmetry and investigate the quantization. Classical spin with noncompact SU(N, 1) symmetry is first formulated as a dynamical system and the constraint analysis is performed to reduce the system from the group space to the coadjoint orbit which is a symplectic manifold with Kähler structure. We achieve this by solving the constraint directly. It is shown that the dynamical variables describing the noncompact spins can be… 



SO*(2N) coherent states for loop quantum gravity

A SU(2) intertwiner with N legs can be interpreted as the quantum state of a convex polyhedron with N faces (when working in 3D). We show that the intertwiner Hilbert space carries a representation

Biscalar Integrable Conformal Field Theories in Any Dimension.

We propose a D-dimensional generalization of 4D biscalar conformal quantum field theory recently introduced by Gürdogan and one of the authors as a particular strong-twist limit of γ-deformed N=4

Quasi-Conformal Actions, Quaternionic Discrete Series and Twistors: SU(2, 1) and G2(2)

Quasi-conformal actions were introduced in the physics literature as a generalization of the familiar fractional linear action on the upper half plane, to Hermitian symmetric tube domains based on

Path Integrals and Coherent States of Su(2) and Su(1, 1)

The authors examine several topical subjects, commencing with a general introduction to path integrals in quantum mechanics and the group theoretical backgrounds for path integrals. Applications of
