Monodromy and the Bohr-Sommerfeld Geometric Quantization

  title={Monodromy and the Bohr-Sommerfeld Geometric Quantization},
  author={Nicola Sansonetto},
We study the linear part of the monodromy of completely integrable Hamiltonian systems via Bohr--Sommerfeld Geometric Quantization. We relate monodromy to the ambiguity in the choice of the pre--quantum connection and to the action of the (connected component of the) gauge group.

We addressed quantization phenomena in open systems and confined motion in low-dimensional systems, as well as quantized sources in 3-dimensions. The thesis of the paper is that if we simply cast the


Monodromy in the champagne bottle
We show that the Hamiltonian description of a particle moving in a potential field shaped like the punt of a champagne bottle (more properly anS1 symmetric double well) has monodromy, which is a
Geometric Quantization
We review the definition of geometric quantization, which begins with defining a mathematical framework for the algebra of observables that holds equally well for classical and quantum mechanics. We
Quantum Monodromy in Integrable Systems
Abstract: Let P1(h),...,Pn(h) be a set of commuting self-adjoint h-pseudo-differential operators on an n-dimensional manifold. If the joint principal symbol p is proper, it is known from the work of
Integrable Hamiltonian Systems with Two Degrees of Freedom
Our main goal in this chapter is to describe the structure of the Liouville foliation near a singular fiber of an integrable Hamiltonian system (definitions follow). A similar problem was formulated
