The Fokker-Planck equation is a partial differential equation which is a key ingredient in many models in physics. This paper aims to obtain a quantum counterpart of Fokker-Planck dynamics, as a means to describing quantum Fokker-Planck dynamics. Given that relevant models relate to the description of large systems, the quantization of the Fokker-Planck equation should be done in a manner that respects this fact, and is therefore carried out within the setting of noncommutative analysis based…

For a system of spins and Fermions (satisfying graded commutation relations) on a lattice, a C*-dynamics can be associated with a potential, which has a natural convergence property and a very…

A note on derivations of Murray–von Neumann algebras

- Mathematics, MedicineProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 2014

It is proved that the only derivation that maps a Murray–von Neumann algebra associated with a factor of type II1 into that factor is 0, and extensions of Singer’s seminal result answering a question of Kaplansky are applied to von Neumann algebras.

The role of type III factors in quantum field theory

Abstract One of von Neumann's motivations for developing the theory of operator algebras and his and Murray's 1936 classification of factors was the question of possible decompositions of quantum…

Quantum Fokker-Planck models: the Lindblad and Wigner approaches

In this article we try to bridge the gap between the quantum dynamical semigroup and Wigner function approaches to quantum open systems. In particular we study stationary states and the long time…

Diffusion for weakly coupled quantum oscillators

We construct a simple model which exhibits some of the properties discussed by van Hove in his study of the Pauli master equation. The model consists of an infinite chain of quantum oscillators which…

Quasi-entropies for States of a von Neumann Algebra

In a general von Neumann algebra context the relative entropy of two states was defined and investigated by Araki ([3], see also [5]). When <p and w are normal states on a von Neuman algebra M the…

It is well known that the analysis of the large-time asymptotics of Fokker-Planck type equations by the entropy method is closely related to proving the validity of convex Sobolev inequalities. Here…
