Differential Geometry of Quantum States, Observables and Evolution
The geometrical description of Quantum Mechanics is reviewed and proposed as an alternative picture to the standard ones. The basic notions of observables, states, evolution and composition of
Kraus operators and symmetric groups
In the contest of open quantum systems, we study a class of Kraus operators whose definition relies on the defining representation of the symmetric groups. We analyze the induced orbits as well as
Lagrangian description of Heisenberg and Landau–von Neumann equations of motion
An explicit Lagrangian description is given for the Heisenberg equation on the algebra of operators of a quantum system, and for the Landau-von Neumann equation on the manifold of quantum states
Nonlinear description of quantum dynamics: Generalized coherent states
In this work it is shown that there is an inherent nonlinear evolution in the dynamics of the so-called generalized coherent states. To show this, the immersion of a classical manifold into the
Quantum states, groups and monotone metric tensors
A novel link between monotone metric tensors and actions of suitable extensions of the unitary group on the manifold of faithful quantum states is presented here by means of three illustrative
Covariant variational evolution and Jacobi brackets: Particles
The formulation of covariant brackets on the space of solutions to a variational problem is analyzed in the framework of contact geometry. It is argued that the Poisson algebra on the space of

Geometrical Structures for Classical and Quantum Probability Spaces
On the affine space containing the space $\mathcal{S}$ of quantum states of finite-dimensional systems there are contravariant tensor fields by means of which it is possible to define Hamiltonian and
K\"ahler geometry on complex projective spaces via reduction and unfolding.
We review how a reduction procedure along a principal fibration and an unfolding procedure associated to a suitable momentum map allow to describe the K\"ahler geometry of a finite dimensional


Symmetries, Group Actions, and Entanglement
This work addresses the geometry of the space of Hermitian operators on a finite-dimensional Hilbert space and discusses and gives examples of entanglement measures for quantum composite systems.
On the generators of quantum dynamical semigroups
The notion of a quantum dynamical semigroup is defined using the concept of a completely positive map. An explicit form of a bounded generator of such a semigroup onB(ℋ) is derived. This is a quantum
Quantum mechanics as an infinite‐dimensional Hamiltonian system with uncertainty structure: Part II
Making reference to the formalism developed in Part I to formulate Schrodinger quantum mechanics, the properties of Kahlerian functions in general, almost Kahlerian manifolds, are studied.
Completely Positive Dynamical Semigroups of N Level Systems
We establish the general form of the generator of a completely positive dynamical semigroup of an N‐level quantum system, and we apply the result to derive explicit inequalities among the physical
Normal pure states of the von Neumann algebra of bounded operators as Kähler manifold
The projective space of a complex Hilbert space H is considered both as a Kahler manifold and as the set of pure states of the von Neumann algebra B(H). A link is given between these two structures.

Various problems concerning the geometry of the space of Hermitian operators on a Hilbert space are addressed. In particular, we study the canonical Poisson and Riemann?Jordan tensors and the
