Confluence of singularities of differential equation: a Lie algebra contraction approach

  title={Confluence of singularities of differential equation: a Lie algebra contraction approach},
  author={Mohammed Brahim Zahaf and Dominique Manchon},
  journal={arXiv: Representation Theory},
We investigate here the confluence of singularities of Mathieu differential equation by means of the Lie algebra contraction of the Lie algebra of the motion group M(2) on the Heisenberg Lie algebra H(3). A similar approach for the Lam\'e equation in terms of the Lie algebra contraction of $SO_0(2,1)$ on the Lie algebra of the motion group M(2) is outlined. 

Transition to Volume II

This final chapter describes the transition to the mathematical themes that will be developed in the second volume. (i) The explicit calculation of the elements of the sub-Riemannian geometry of the

Landmarks for Neurogeometry

We present a historical survey of the way Neurogeometry links the modelling of the functional architectures of primary visual areas with sub-Riemannian geometry.



Contractions of lie algebras: Applications to special functions and separation of variables

We investigate the consequences of contraction of the Lie algebras of the orthogonal groups to the Lie algebras of the Euclidean groups in terms of separation of variables for Laplace-Beltrami

Contractions of representations of de Sitter groups

In order to construct the quantum field theory in a curved space with no “old” infinities as the curvature tends to zero, the problem of contraction of representations of the corresponding group of

Multiresolution approximations and wavelet orthonormal bases of L^2(R)

From any multiresolution approximation, one can derive a function >i/(x) called a wavelet such that {V2~Ji//(2Jx k)),k )6Z2 is an orthonormal basis of L2(R, which provides a new approach for understanding and computing wavelet Orthonormal bases.
