The energy levels, generally known as the Landau levels, which characterize the motion of an electron in a constant magnetic field, are those of the one-dimensional harmonic oscillator, with each level being infinitely degenerate. We show in this paper how the associated von Neumann algebra of observables displays a modular structure in the sense of the Tomita–Takesaki theory, with the algebra and its commutant referring to the two orientations of the magnetic field. A Kubo–Martin–Schwinger… 

An interesting modular structure associated to Landau levels

We analyze here, from a von Neumann algebraic point of view, the well known problem of a charged particle, moving on the infinite two-dimensional plane under the influence of a constant magnetic

Modular Structures on Trace Class Operators and Applications to Themodynamical Equilibrium States of Infinitely Degenerate Systems.

We study the thermal equilibrium states (KMS states) of infinitely degenerate Hamiltonians, in particular, we study the example of the Landau levels. We classify all KMS states in an example of

Density operator approach for Landau problem quantum Hamiltonians

In this work, the definition of the density operator on quantum states in Hilbert spaces and some of its aspects relevant in thermodynamics and information-theoretical entropy calculations are given.

Modified Landau levels, damped harmonic oscillator, and two-dimensional pseudo-bosons

In a series of recent papers, one of us has analyzed in some details a class of elementary excitations called pseudo-bosons. They arise from a special deformation of the canonical commutation

Modular operators and entanglement in supersymmetric quantum mechanics

The modular operator approach of Tomita–Takesaki to von Neumann algebras is elucidated in the algebraic structure of certain supersymmetric (SUSY) quantum mechanical systems. A von Neumann algebra is

Zeros of Gaussian Weyl–Heisenberg Functions and Hyperuniformity of Charge

The following uncertainty principle is proved: the expected number of zeros per unit area of the short-time Fourier transform of complex white noise is minimized, among all window functions, exactly by generalized Gaussians.

some families of complex biorthogonal polynomials in a model of non-commutative quantum mechanics

the main objective of this thesis is to study some new families of complex biorthogonal polynomials which arise in a model of non-commutative quantum mechanics (NCQM) in two dimensions. The NCQM

On some analytic properties of slice poly‐regular Hermite polynomials

We consider a quaternionic analogue of the univariate complex Hermite polynomials and study some of their analytic properties in some detail. We obtain their integral representation as well as the

Lie algebra representations and 1-parameter 2D-Hermite polynomials

ABSTRACT The representations of the Lie algebras generate in a natural way all known classical special polynomials. This allows one to greatly simplify the theory of orthogonal polynomials by



Vector coherent states from Plancherel's theorem, Clifford algebras and matrix domains

As a substantial generalization of the technique for constructing canonical and the related nonlinear and q-deformed coherent states, we present here a method for constructing vector coherent states

Two families of superintegrable and isospectral potentials in two dimensions

As an extension of the intertwining operator idea, an algebraic method which provides a link between supersymmetric quantum mechanics and quantum (super)integrability is introduced. By realization of

Some physical appearances of vector coherent states and coherent states related to degenerate Hamiltonians

In the spirit of some earlier work on the construction of vector coherent states (VCS) over matrix domains, we compute here such states associated to some physical Hamiltonians. In particular, we

Geometric quantization: Modular reduction theory and coherent states

The natural role played by coherent states in the geometric quantization program is brought out by studying the mathematical equivalence between two physical interpretations that have recently been

Quantum corrections to the Wigner crystal: A Hartree-Fock expansion.

The quantum corrections to the two-dimensional Wigner crystal, for filling ν≤1/3, are discussed by using a Hartree-Fock expansion based on wave functions which are (i) related to one another by

Vector coherent states and intertwining operators

In this paper, we discuss a general strategy to construct vector coherent states of the Gazeau–Klauder type and we use them to build up examples of isospectral Hamiltonians. For that we use a general

Coherent States

Coherent states (of the harmonic oscillator) were introduced by Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) at the very beginning of quantum mechanics in response to a complaint by Lorentz that Schrödinger’s wave

Formulation, interpretation and application of non-commutative quantum mechanics

In analogy with conventional quantum mechanics, non-commutative quantum mechanics is formulated as a quantum system on the Hilbert space of Hilbert–Schmidt operators acting on non-commutative
