Graph Techniques for Matrix Equations and Eigenvalue Dynamics
2008 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
One way to construct noncommutative analogues of a Riemannian manifold Σ is to make use of the Toeplitz quantization procedure. In Paper III and IV, we construct C-algebras for a continuously deformable class of spheres and tori, and by introducing the directed graph of a representation, we can completely characterize the representation theory of these algebras in terms of the corresponding graphs. It turns out that the irreducible representations are indexed by the periodic orbits and N-strings of an iterated map s:(reals) 2→(reals)2 associated to the algebra. As our construction allows for transitions between spheres and tori (passing through a singular surface), one easily sees how the structure of the matrices changes as the topology changes.
In Paper II, noncommutative analogues of minimal surface and membrane equations are constructed and new solutions are presented -- some of which correspond to minimal tori embedded in S7.
Paper I is concerned with the problem of finding differential equations for the eigenvalues of a symmetric N × N matrix satisfying Xdd=0.
Namely, by finding N(N-1)/2 suitable conserved quantities, the time-evolution of X (with arbitrary initial conditions), is reduced to non-linear equations involving only the eigenvalues of Χ.
