# Geometric and Algebraic Topological Methods in Quantum Mechanics

@inproceedings{GGiachetta2004GeometricAA, title={Geometric and Algebraic Topological Methods in Quantum Mechanics}, author={G.Giachetta and L.Mangiarotti and G.Sardanashvily}, year={2004} }

In the last decade, the development of new ideas in quantum theory, including geometric and deformation quantization, the non-Abelian Berry factor, super- and BRST symmetries, non-commutativity, has called into play the geometric techniques based on the deep interplay between algebra, differential geometry and topology. The present book aims at being a guide to advanced differential geometric and topological methods in quantum mechanics. Their main peculiarity lies in the fact that geometry in…

GEOMETRIC FORMULATION OF NON-AUTONOMOUS MECHANICS

- Mathematics
- 2013

We address classical and quantum mechanics in a general setting of arbitrary timedependent transformations. Classical non-relativistic mechanics is formulated as a particular field theory on smooth…

A dilemma of nonequivalent definitions of differential operators in noncommutative geometry

- Mathematics
- 2007

In contrast with differential operators on modules over commutative and graded commutative rings, there is no satisfactory notion of a differential operator in noncommutative geometry.

The variational bicomplex on graded manifolds and its cohomology

Classical Field Theory: Advanced Mathematical Formulation

- Mathematics
- 2008

In contrast with QFT, classical field theory can be formulated in strict mathematical terms of fibre bundles, graded manifolds and jet manifolds. Second Noether theorems provide BRST extension of…

Axiomatic quantum field theory. Jet formalism
