Towards affine dynamical symmetry, JOURNAL OF MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS AND APPLICATIONS, ISSN: 0022247X, DOI: 10.1016/j.jmaa.2016.08.042, Vol.446, pp.493520, 2017 Abstract: In this paper we discuss certain dynamical models of affine bodies, including problems of partial separability and integrability. There are some reasons to expect that the suggested models are dynamically viable and that on the fundamental level of physical phenomena the “large” affine symmetry of dynamical laws is more justified and desirable than the restricted invariance under isometries. Keywords:Homogeneous deformation, structured media, affinelyinvariant dynamics, elastic vibrations encoded in kinetic energy, CalogeroMoser and Sutherland integrable lattices Affiliations:

We base our consideration on the usual Schrödinger formulation of quantum mechanics in the configurationmanifold, which is given, in our case, by the affine group or equivalently by the semidirect product of the linear group GL(n,R) and the space of translations R^n, where n equals the dimension of the “physical space.” In particular, we discuss the problem of dynamical invariance of the kinetic energy under the action of the whole affine group, not only under the isometry subgroup. Technically, the treatment is based on the 2polar decomposition of the matrix of the internal configuration and on the PeterWeyl theory of generalized Fourier series on Lie groups. One can hope that our results may be applied in quantum problems of elastic media and microstructured continua. Keywords:Homogeneously deformable body, PeterWeyl analysis, Schrödinger quantization.

This is to be done both classically and quantum mechanically. We illustrate this with a silicon crystal. Then, quantum mechanically measuring with a wire containing electrons, we obtain a theoretically good approximation for an electron in one semiconductor. As well, we outline what has to be done for any crystal. Keywords:Quantum mechanics in Phase space, Symmetry groups for a crystal, Groups representation, Quantization Affiliations:

First of all we present a geometric interpretation of the polar and the twopolar decomposition of affine motion. Later on some additional constraints imposed on the affine motion are reviewed, both holonomic and nonholonomic. In particular, we concentrate on certain natural nonholonomic models of the rotationless motion. We discuss both the usual d’Alembert model and the vakonomic dynamics. The resulting equations are quite different. It is not yet clear which model is practically better. In any case they both are different from the holonomic constraints defining the rotationless motion as a timedependent family of symmetric matrices of placements. The latter model seems to be nongeometric and nonphysical. Nevertheless, there are certain relationships between our nonholonomic models and the polar decomposition.

We show that unlike the real history of physics, the theories with algebraically secondorder Lagrangians are primary, and in case more adequate. It is shown that in principle, the Schodinger idea about Lagrangians which are quadratic in derivatives, and leading to secondorder differential equations, is not only acceptable, but just it opens some new perspective in field theory. This has to do with using the Lorentzconformal or rather its universal covering SU(2,3) as a gauge group. This has also some influence on the theory of defect in continua.

The corresponding electrodynamic vacuum field theory aspects of the classical Maxwell–Lorentz theory are analyzed in detail. Electrodynamic models of charged point particle dynamics based on a Maxwell type vacuum field medium description are described, and new field theory concepts related to the mass particle paradigms are discussed. We also revisit and reanalyze the mathematical structure of the classical Lorentz force expression with respect to arbitrary inertial reference frames and present new interpretations of some classical special relativity theory relationships.

By essential nonlinearities we mean ones which are not interpretable as some extra perturbations imposed on a linear background deciding about the most important qualitative features of discussed phenomena. We also investigate some discrete and continuous systems, roughly speaking with large symmetry groups. And some remarks about the link between two concepts are reviewed. Namely, we advocate the thesis that the most important nonperturbative nonlinearities are those implied by the assumed “large” symmetry groups. It is clear that such a relationship does exist, although there is no complete theory. We compare the mechanism of inducing nonlinearity by symmetry groups of discrete and continuous systems. Many striking and instructive analogies are found, e.g., analogy between analytical mechanics of systems of affine bodies and general relativity, tetrad models of gravitation, and BornInfeld nonlinearity. Some interesting, a bit surprising problems concerning Noether theorem are discussed, in particular in the context of large symmetry groups.

We analyze the relationship between this formalism and geometry of the Galilei group, classical momentum mapping, theory of unitary projective representations of groups, and theory of groups algebras. Later on, we present some generalization to quantum mechanics on locally compact Abelian groups. It is based on Pontryagin duality. Indicated are certain physical aspects in quantum dynamics of crystal lattices, including the phenomenon of ‘Umklapp–Prozessen’.

First of all, we mean the motion of a small gyroscope in the nonrelativistic Einstein Universe RXS3(0;R); the second factor denoting the Euclidean 3sphere of radius R in R4. But certain problems concerning twogyroscopic systems in Euclidean space R3 are also mentioned. The special stress is laid on the relationship between various models of the configuration space like, e.g., SU(2)xSU(2), SO(4;R), SO(3;R)xSO(3;R) etc. They are locally diffeomorphic, but globally different. We concentrate on classical problems, nevertheless, some quantum aspects are also mentioned.

Its affine transformation rule is interesting in itself and dependent on the particle mass. On the quantum level this means obviously that we deal with the projective unitary representation of the group rather than with the usual representation. The status of mass is completely different than in relativistic theory, where it is a continuous eigenvalue of the Casimir invariant. In Galilei framework it is a parameter characterizing the factor of the projective representation, in the sense of V. Bargmann. This “pathology” from the relativistic point of view is nevertheless very interesting and it underlies the WeylWignerMoyalVille approach to quantum mechanics.

Presented is detailed algebraic and geometric analysis of concepts like mutual deformation tensors and their invariants. Problems of affine invariance and of its interplay with the usual Euclidean invariance are reviewed. This analysis was motivated by mechanics of affine (homogeneously deformable) bodies, nevertheless, it is also relevant for the theory of unconstrained continua and discrete media. Postulated are some models where the dynamics of elastic vibrations is encoded not only in potential energy (sometimes even not at all) but also (sometimes first of all) in appropriately chosen models of kinetic energy (metric tensor on the configuration space), like in Maupertuis principle. Physically, the models may be applied in structured discrete media, molecular crystals, fullerens, and even in description of astrophysical objects. Continuous limit of our affinemultibody theory is expected to provide a new class of micromorphic media.

Group Algebras as a Framework for QuantumMechanical Models with Symmetries, Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics, DOI: 10.7546/jgsp2120116194, Vol.21, pp.6194, 2011 Abstract: We use the mathematical structure of group algebras and $H^+$algebras for describing certain problems concerning the quantum dynamics of systems of angular momenta, including also the spin systems. The underlying groups are SU(2) and its quotient SO(3, R). The proposed scheme is applied in two different contexts. Firstly, the purely groupalgebraic framework is applied to the system of angular momenta of arbitrary origin, e.g., orbital and spin angular momenta of electrons and nucleons, systems of quantized angular momenta of rotating extended objects like molecules. Secondly, the other promising area of applications is Schroedinger quantum mechanics of rigid body with its often rather unexpected and very interesting features. Even within this Schroedinger framework the algebras of operators related to group algebras are a very useful tool. We investigate some problems of composed systems and the quasiclassical limit obtained as the asymptotics of “large” quantum numbers, i.e., “quickly oscillating” wave functions on groups. They are related in an interesting way to geometry of the coadjoint orbits of SU(2).

The treatment there was very “ascetic” in that only the structure of a locally compact topological group was used. Below we explicitly make use of the Lie group structure. Relying on differential geometry one is able to introduce explicitly representation of important physical quantities and to formulate the general ideas of quasiclassical representation and classical analogy.

In two previous parts we have discussed the methods of group algebras in formulation of quantum mechanics and certain quasiclassical problems. Below we specify to the special case of the group SU(2) and its quotient SO(3,R), and discuss just our main subject in this series, i.e., angular momentum problems. To be more precise, this is the purely SU(2)treatment, so formally this might also apply to isospin. However. it is rather hard to imagine realistic quasiclassical isospin problems.

It provides an interesting example of “mechanics” with singular Lagrangians, effectively treatable within the framework of Dirac formalism. We discuss also some modified “Schrödinger” equations involving secondorder time derivatives and introduce a kind of nondirect, nonperturbative, geometricallymotivated nonlinearity based on making the scalar product a dynamical quantity. There are some reasons to expect that this might be a new way of describing open dynamical systems and explaining some quantum “paradoxes”.

The main novelty in comparison with the previous attempts of this kind is that it is not only kinematics but also dynamics that is affinelyinvariant.

The special stress is laid on the dynamics of deformable bodies and the mutual coupling between rotations and deformations. Deformative modes are discretized, i.e., it is assumed that the relevant degrees of freedom are controlled by a finite number of parameters. We concentrate on the situation when the effective configuration space is identical with affine group (affinelyrigid bodies). The special attention is paid to left and rightinvariant geodetic systems, when there is no potential term and the metric tensor underlying the kinetic energy form is invariant under left or/and right regular translations on the group. The dynamics of elastic vibrations may be encoded in this way in the very form of kinetic energy. Although special attention is paid to invariant geodetic systems, the potential case is also taken into account.

A general solution of KGD equation as a superposition of two Dirac plane harmonic waves with different masses has been obtained. The multiplication rules for Dirac bispinors with different masses have been found. Lagrange formalism has been applied to receive the energymomentum tensor and 4current. It appears, in particular, that the scalar product is a superposition of KleinGordon and Dirac scalar products. The primary approach to canonical formalism is suggested. The limit cases of equal masses and one zero mass have been calculated.

1.  Sławianowski J.J., The two apparently different but hiddenly related Euler achievements: rigid body and ideal fluid. Our unifying going between: affinelyrigid body and affine invariance in physics, Geometry, Integrability and Quantization, ISSN: 13143247, DOI: 10.7546/giq1620153672, Vol.XVI, pp.3672, 2015 Abstract: Reviewed are ideas underlying our concept of affinelyrigid body. We do this from the perspective of the Leonhard Euler two main achieve ments, known under his name: the mechanics of rigid body and the dynamics of incompressible ideal fluid. But we formulate the theory which is somehow placed between those two models. Our scheme is a finitedimensional dynamical system, but admitting deformative degrees of freedom. We also stress the connection with the general idea of affine invariance in physics. Keywords:igid body, incompressible ideal fluid, affine invariance, finitedimensional dynamical systems, deformative degrees of freedom Affiliations:

Some symmetry problems and possible applications were discussed. We referred also to our motivation by Euler ideas. Below we describe the general principles of the quantization of this theory in the Schroedinger language. The special stress is laid on highlysymmetric, in particular affinelyinvariant, models and the PeterWeyl analysis of wave functions.

Strictly speaking, we consider the model of the harmonic oscillator potential and then discuss some natural anharmonic modifications. It is interesting that the considered doublyisotropic models admit coordinate systems in which the classical and Schrödinger equations are separable and in principle solvable in terms of special functions on groups.

In other words, discussed are systems on groups SU(2), SO(3,R), and SL(2,R) or its quotient SO(1,2) . The main subject are completely degenerate Bertrandlike systems. We present the actionangle classical description, the corresponding quasiclassical analysis and the rigorous quantum formulas. It is interesting that both the classical actionangle formulas and the rigorous quantum mechanical energy levels are superpositions of the flatspace expression, with those describing free geodetic motion on groups.

More precisely, the material space may have dimension lower than the physical space. Physically interesting are special cases m = 2 or m = 1 and n = 3, first of all m = 2, n = 3, i.e., roughly speaking, the affinely deformable coin in three–dimensional Euclidean space. We introduce some special coordinate systems generalizing the polar and two–polar decompositions in the regular case. This enables us to reduce the dynamics to two degrees of freedom. In quantum case this is the reduction of the Schrödinger equation to multicom ponent wave functions of two deformation invariants. Keywords:affinely rigid motion, degenerate dimension, polar and twopolar decompositions, multicomponent wave function, Schrödinger equation, quantized models, deformation invariants Affiliations:

We show that unlike the real history of physics, the theories with algebraically secondorder Lagrangians are primary, and in case more adequate. It is shown that in principle, the Schodinger idea about Lagrangians which are quadratic in derivatives, and leading to secondorder differential equations, is not only acceptable, but just it opens some new perspective in field theory. This has to do with using the Lorentzconformal or rather its universal covering SU(2,3) as a gauge group. This has also some influence on the theory of defect in continua.

Our goal is to carry out a thorough analysis of the geometric problems we are faced with in the dynamics of affinely rigid bodies. We examine two models: classical dynamics description by d'Alembert and vakonomic one. We conclude that their results are quite different. It is not yet clear which model i practically better.

8.  Sławianowski J.J., Martens A., The dynamics of the field of linear frames and gauge gravitation, Geometry, Integrability and Quantization, ISSN: 13143247, DOI: 10.7546/gip142013201214, Vol.XIV, pp.201214, 2013 Abstract: The paper is motivated by gauge theories of gravitation and condensed matter, tetrad models of gravitation and generalized BornInfeld type nonlinearity. The main idea is that any generallycovariant and GL(n,R)invariant theory of the nleg field (tetrad field when n=4) must have the BornInfeld structure. This means that Lagrangian is given by the square root of the determinant of some secondorder twice covariant tensor built in a quadratic way of the field derivatives. It is shown taht there exist interesting solutions of the grouptheoretical structure. Some models of the interaction between gravitation and matter are suggested. It turns out that in a sense the spacetime dimension n=4, the normalhyperbolic signature and velocity of light are integration constants of our differential equations.

For simplicity, a finitelevel system is considered. A modified Schrödinger equation with the second time derivatives is described and some direct nonlinearity is admitted. The key of our idea is the assumption that the scalar product is not fixed once for all, but is a dynamical quantity mutually interacting with the state vector. We assume that the Lagrangian term describing its dynamics has the large symmetry group, the total complex linear group. This implies the strong essential nonlinearity. There is a hope that this geometrically implied nonlinearity may explain the decoherence and measurement paradoxes in quantum mechanics.
