This work represents a first systematic attempt to create a common ground for semi-classical and time-frequency analysis. These two different areas combined together provide interesting outcomes in terms of Schrödinger type equations. Indeed, continuity results of both Schrödinger propagators and their asymptotic solutions are obtained on ℏ$\hbar $-dependent Banach spaces, the semi-classical version of the well-known modulation spaces. Moreover, their operator norm is controlled by a constant… 

On the convergence of a novel family of time slicing approximation operators for Feynman path integrals

In this note we study the properties of a sequence of approximate propagators for the Schrödinger equation, in the spirit of Feynman’s path integrals. Precisely, we consider Hamiltonian operators

A Time–Frequency Analysis Perspective on Feynman Path Integrals

The purpose of this expository paper is to highlight the starring role of time-frequency analysis techniques in some recent contributions concerning the mathematical theory of Feynman path integrals.

Computing quantum dynamics in the semiclassical regime

This paper reviews and studies numerical approaches that are robust to the small semiclassical parameter, and presents and analyses variationally evolving Gaussian wave packets, Hagedorn’s semiclassicals wave packet, continuous superpositions of both thawed and frozen Gaussians, and Wigner function approaches to the direct computation of expectation values of observables.

Time-Frequency Analysis of Fourier Integral Operators

We use time-frequency methods for the study of Fourier Integral operators (FIOs). In this paper we shall show that Gabor frames provide very efficient representations for a large class of FIOs.

Schrodinger equations with rough Hamiltonians

We consider a class of linear Schrodinger equations in $\mathbb{R}^d$ with rough Hamiltonian, namely with certain derivatives in the Sjoostrand class $M^{\infty,1}$. We prove that the corresponding

Boundedness of Schrödinger Type Propagators on Modulation Spaces

It is known that Fourier integral operators arising when solving Schrödinger-type operators are bounded on the modulation spaces ℳp,q, for 1≤p= q≤∞, provided their symbols belong to the Sjöstrand

PHASE SPACE TRANSFORMS AND MICROLOCAL ANALYSIS

The aim of this notes is to introduce a phase space approach to microlocal analysis. This is just a beginning, and there are many directions one can take from here. The main tool in our analysis is

Generalized metaplectic operators and the Schrödinger equation with a potential in the Sjöstrand class

It is well known that the matrix of a metaplectic operator with respect to phase-space shifts is concentrated along the graph of a linear symplectic map. We show that the algebra generated by
