We present a proof that the operator norm of the commutator of certain spectral projections associated with spin operators converges to $\frac 1 2$ in the semiclassical limit. The ranges of the projections are spanned by all eigenvectors corresponding to positive eigenvalues. The proof involves the theory of Hankel operators on the Hardy space. A discussion of several analogous results is also included, with an emphasis on the case of finite Heisenberg groups.

We show that the operator norm of an arbitrary bivariate polynomial, evaluated on certain spectral projections of spin operators, converges to the maximal value in the semiclassical limit. We



Strong contraction of the representations of the three-dimensional Lie algebras

For any İnönü–Wigner contraction of a three-dimensional Lie algebra we construct the corresponding contractions of representations. Our method is quite canonical in the sense that in all cases we

Quantization of Compact Symplectic Manifolds

We develop the theory of Berezin–Toeplitz operators on any compact symplectic prequantizable manifold from scratch. Our main inspiration is the Boutet de Monvel–Guillemin theory, which we simplify in

Berezin-Toeplitz quantization of compact Kähler manifolds

In this lecture results are reviewed obtained by the author together with Martin Bordemann and Eckhard Meinrenken on the Berezin-Toeplitz quantization of compact Kaehler manifolds. Using global

An Excursion into the Theory of Hankel Operators

This survey is an introduction to the theory of Hankel operators, a beautiful area of mathematical analysis that is also very important in applications. We start with classical results: Kronecker’s

Unitary Representations of Some Linear Groups

Recently I. Gelfand and M. Neumark [2] have determined the types of irreducible unitary representations of the group G1 of linear transformations of the straight line. The analogous result is

Symplectic Geometry of Quantum Noise

We discuss a quantum counterpart, in the sense of the Berezin–Toeplitz quantization, of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from “hard” symplectic geometry. It turns out that they can be

Berezin-Toeplitz Quantization for Compact Kähler Manifolds. A Review of Results

This article is a review on Berezin-Toeplitz operator and Berezin-Toeplitz deformation quantization for compact quantizable Kahler manifolds. The basic objects, concepts, and results are given. This

Quantum systems with finite Hilbert space

Quantum systems with finite Hilbert space are considered, and phase-space methods like the Heisenberg–Weyl group, symplectic transformations and Wigner and Weyl functions are discussed. A
