Geometric Aspects of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Entanglement
It is shown that the standard non-relativistic Quantum Mechanics gives rise to elegant and rich geometrical structures. The space of quantum states is endowed with nontrivial Fubini-Study metric
Introduction to quantum mechanics and the quantum-classical transition
In this paper we present a survey of the use of differential geometric formalisms to describe Quantum Mechanics. We analyze Schroedinger and Heisenberg frameworks from this perspective and discuss
Remarks on the GNS Representation and the Geometry of Quantum States
It turns out that the GNS representation provides not only symplectic but even Hermitian realization of a 'quantum Poisson algebra' in the standard non-relativistic quantum mechanics.
Geometric phase in PT-symmetric quantum mechanics
Unitary evolution in PT-symmetric quantum mechanics (QM) with a time-dependent metric is found to yield an interesting class of adiabatic processes. As an explicit example, a Berry-like phase
A symmetry approach to geometric phase for quantum ensembles
We use tools from the theory of dynamical systems with symmetries to stratify Uhlmann's standard purification bundle and derive a new connection for mixed quantum states. For unitarily evolving sys
Geometric approach to non-relativistic quantum dynamics of mixed states
In this paper we propose a geometrization of the non-relativistic quantum mechanics for mixed states. Our geometric approach makes use of the Uhlmann's principal fibre bundle to describe the space of
Some Geometric Properties of Quantum Phases and Calculation of Phase Formulas
An introduction to several geometrical ideas which are of use to quantum mechanics is presented. The Aharonov-Anandan phase is introduced and without reference to any dynamical equation, this phase
Quantum information metric and Berry curvature from a Lagrangian approach
A bstractWe take as a starting point an expression for the quantum geometric tensor recently derived in the context of the gauge/gravity duality. We proceed to generalize this formalism in such way
On Time-Local Generators of Quantum Evolution
The properties of time-local generators giving rise to legitimate completely positive trace preserving quantum evolutions are characterized and the analysis of Markovian and non-Markovian quantum dynamics is presented.
Phase-Space Approach to Berry Phases
This approach sheds a new light onto the correspon-dence between classical and quantum adiabatic phases – both phases are related with the av-eraging procedure: Hannay angle with averaging over the classical torus and Berry phase with averaged over the entire classical phase space with respect to the corresponding Wigner function.
