Geometric and Algebraic Topological Methods in Quantum Mechanics

  title={Geometric and Algebraic Topological Methods in Quantum Mechanics},
  author={G.Giachetta and L.Mangiarotti and G.Sardanashvily},
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… 
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
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
Lagrangian formalism on graded manifolds is phrased in terms of the Grassmann-graded variational bicomplex, generalizing the familiar variational bicomplex for even Lagrangian systems on fiber
Inequivalent Vacuum States in Algebraic Quantum Theory
The GNS representation construction is considered in a general case of topological involutive algebras of quantum systems, including quantum fields, and inequivalent state spaces of these systems are
Relativistic mechanics in a general setting
Relativistic mechanics on an arbitrary manifold is formulated in the terms of jets of its one-dimensional submanifolds. A generic relativistic Lagrangian is constructed. Relativistic mechanics on a
Graded Infinite Order Jet Manifolds
The relevant material on differential calculus on graded infinite order jet manifolds and its cohomology is summarized. This mathematics provides the adequate formulation of Lagrangian theories of
Classical Field Theory: Advanced Mathematical Formulation
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
Jet formalism provides the adequate mathematical formulation of classical field theory, reviewed in hep-th/0612182v1. A formulation of QFT compatible with this classical one is discussed. We are
On the differential smoothness of 3-dimensional skew polynomial algebras and diffusion algebras
In this paper, we study the differential smoothness of 3-dimensional skew polynomial algebras and diffusion algebras.
