The books of Souriau () and Simms and Woodhouse () present the theory of geometric quantization and its relationship to quantum mech- anics. The purpose of the present book is to complement the preceding ones by including new developments of the theory and emphasizing the computations leading to results in quantum mechanics.

Geometric Quantization John Baez Aug Geometric quantization is a marvelous tool for understanding the relation between classical physics and quantum physics. However, it's a bit like a power tool — you have to be an expert to operate it without running the risk of seriously injuring your brain. Here's a brief sketch of how it goes.

In geometric quantization you obtain this Hilbert space by taking a prequantum line bundle over M, which is a smooth complex Hermitian line bundle L with unitary connection \nabla such that the first Chern class equals the class of the symplectic form \omega (or, say, F_ \nabla = - . The topic of this nice book can be defined as a geometric approach to the investigation of some analytic problems, especially to the study of Fourier integral operators. These operators are now widely used for the analysis of singularities of solutions of linear partial differential equations and for the study of the spectra of the.

Danger Beneath (Wordsy & Jess Adventures)

The geometric approach to quantization was introduced by Konstant and Souriau more than 20 years ago. It has given valuable and lasting insights into the relationship between classical and quantum systems, and continues to be a popular research topic.

The ideas have proved useful in pure mathematics, notably in representation theory, as well as 4/5(1).

7 Geometric Quantization 93 a geometric viewpoint, is [41]. The book [29] treats further topics in symplectic geometry turn provides a geometric foundation for the further analysis of this and other formulations of quantum mechanics. These notes are still not in ﬁnal form, but they have already beneﬁtted from the comments.

Full Description: "This book contains a revised and expanded version of the lecture notes of two seminar series given during the academic year /77 at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Calgary, and in the summer of at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Technical University Clausthal.

Quantization is a process of associating a classical mechanical system to a Hilbert space. Through this process, classical observables are. This book presents a survey of the geometric quantization theory of Kostant and Souriau and was first published in It has been extensively rewritten and brought up to date, with the addition of many new examples.

Abstract. This chapter describes geometric quantization. The motivation for this mathematical is to mimic quantum mechanics, where a manifold (the “classical phase space”, parametrizing position and momentum) is replaced by a vector space with an inner product; in other words, a Hilbert space (the “space of wave functions”).

Geometric quantization. Given a prequantum bundle as above, the actual step of genuine geometric quantization consists first of forming half its space of sections in a certain sense.

Physically this means passing to the space of wavefunctions that depend only on canonical coordinates but not on canonicalsubgroups of the group of (exponentiated). The geometric approach to quantization was introduced by Konstant and Souriau more than 20 years ago.

It has given valuable and lasting insights into the relationship between classical and quantum systems, and continues to be a popular research topic.

As a. In mathematical physics, geometric quantization is a mathematical approach to defining a quantum theory corresponding to a given classical theory. It attempts to carry out quantization, for which there is in general no exact recipe, in such a way that certain analogies between the classical theory and the quantum theory remain manifest.

A discussion of the relation between geometric quantization and the Marsden—Weinstein reduction is presented in Chapter 9. The final chapter considers extending the theory of geometric quantization to Poisson manifolds, via the theory of symplectic : $ Lectures on Geometric Quantization.

Geometric Quantization 1 Introduction The aim of the geometric quantization program is to describe a quantization procedure in terms of natural geometric structures. To date, this program has succeeded in unifying various older meth-ods of quantizing ﬁnite dimensional physical systems.

The generalization to inﬁnite-dimensional. In the second paper you'll find the geometric quantization of the harmonic oscillator with the Maslov correction. That example is not in the book. I think that that is all what geometric quantization achieves completely, in accordance with physics experiments and results.

The basic idea The setting of the Hamiltonian version of classical (Newtonian) mechanics is the phase space (position and momentum), which is a symplectic manifold.
