Operators and Representation Theory: Canonical Models for Algebras of Operators Arising in Quantum Mechanics / Palle E.T. Jorgensenby Palle E T Jorgensen
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Algebras of operators arise frequently in the study of representations of Lie groups, both finitedimensional and infinitedimensional. This book begins with extensive background material that covers definitions and terminology, operators in Hilbert space, and the imprimitivity theorem. Advancing to considerations of the algebras of operators in Hilbert space, the heart of the text examines domains of representations, operators in the enveloping algebra, and spectral theory. The final section explores covariant representations and connections, with a particular focus on infinitedimensional Lie algebras. A helpful Appendix on the integrability of Lie algebras concludes the text. Synopsis:This survey of operators in Hilbert space offers extensive background material and covers domains of representation, operators in the enveloping algebra, spectral theory, covariant representation, and infinitedimensional Lie algebras. 1988 edition.
