The Hamiltonian of the harmonic oscillator is usually defined as a differential operator, but an integral representation can be obtained by using the coherent state quantization. The finite frame quantization is a finite counterpart of the coherent state quantization and it allows us to define a finite oscillator by starting from the integral representation of the harmonic oscillator. Our purpose is to investigate the oscillator obtained in this way, and to present a possible application to the… 

Gaussian type functions defined on a finite set and finite oscillators

The mathematical description of the quantum harmonic oscillator is essentially based on the Gaussian function. In the case of a quantum oscillator with finite-dimensional Hilbert space, the position

Quantum states defined by using the finite frame quantization

This work investigates the properties of the density operators which can be defined by using the Finite frame quantization method to associate a linear operator to each function on the discrete phase space of the system.

Quantum harmonic oscillator in option pricing

The Black-Scholes model anticipates rather well the observed prices for options in the case of a strike price that is not too far from the current price of the underlying asset. Some useful

On the discrete Wigner function for SU(N)

We present a self-consistent theoretical framework for finite-dimensional discrete phase spaces that leads us to establish a well-grounded mapping scheme between Schwinger unitary operators and



Finite-dimensional Hilbert space and frame quantization

The quantum observables used in this approach are obtained by starting from certain classical observables described by functions defined on the discrete phase space corresponding to the system by using a finite frame and a Klauder–Berezin–Toeplitz-type quantization.

The discrete harmonic oscillator, Harper's equation, and the discrete fractional Fourier transform

Certain solutions to Harper's equation are discrete analogues of (and approximations to) the Hermite-Gaussian functions. They are the energy eigenfunctions of a discrete algebraic analogue of the

Quantum mechanics in finite dimensions

We explicitly compute, following the method of Weyl, the commutator [Q, P] of the position operatorQ and the momentum operatorP of a particle when the dimension of the space on which they act is

Analytic representation of finite quantum systems

A transform between functions in R and functions in Zd is used to define the analogue of number and coherent states in the context of finite d-dimensional quantum systems. The coherent states are

Properties of finite Gaussians and the discrete-continuous transition

Weyl's formulation of quantum mechanics opened the possibility of studying the dynamics of quantum systems both in infinite-dimensional and finite-dimensional systems. Based on Weyl's approach,

An alternative point of view to the theory of fractional Fourier transform

The concept of the fractional Fourier transform is framed within the context of quantum evolution operators. This point of view yields an extension of the above concept and greatly simplifies the

Finite tight frames and some applications

Some results concerning the use of integer coefficients and frame quantization are presented, several examples are suggested and some possible applications are suggested.

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

The discrete fractional Fourier transform

This definition is based on a particular set of eigenvectors of the DFT which constitutes the discrete counterpart of the set of Hermite-Gaussian functions and supports confidence that it will be accepted as the definitive definition of this transform.
