We consider Schrodinger operatorsH = - d2 /dr2 +V onL2([0, ∞)) with the Dirichlet boundary condition. The potentialV may be local or non-local, with polynomial decay at infinity. The point zero in the spectrum ofH is classified, and asymptotic expansions of the resolvent around zero are obtained, with explicit expressions for the leading coefficients. These results are applied to the perturbation of an eigenvalue embedded at zero, and the corresponding modified form of the Fermi golden rule.

We study various conditions on matricesB andC under which they can be the off-diagonal blocks of a partitioned normal matrix.

A bounded linear operator is said to be nice if its adjoint preserves extreme points of the dual unit ball. Motivated by a description due to Labuschagne and Mascioni  of such maps for the space of compact operators on a Hilbert space, in this article we consider a description of nice surjections onK(X, Y) for Banach spacesX, Y. We give necessary and sufficient conditions when nice surjections are given by composition operators. Our results imply automatic continuity of these maps with respect to other topologies on spaces of operators. We also formulate the corresponding result forL(X, Y) thereby proving an analogue of the result from  forLp (1 <p ≠ 2 < ∞) spaces. We also formulate results when nice operators are not of the canonical form, extending and correcting the results from .

We investigate certain classes of normal completely positive (CP) maps on the hyperfinite II1 factorA. Using the representation theory of a suitable irrational rotation algebra, we propose some computable invariants for such CP maps.

We review the existing proofs that the min and max norms are different onB(H) ⊗B(H) and give a shortcut avoiding the consideration of non-separable families of operator spaces.

After discussing some basic facts about generalized module maps, we use the representation theory of the algebra ℬa(E) of adjointable operators on a HilbertB-moduleE to show that the quotient of the group of generalized unitaries onE and its normal subgroup of unitaries onE is a subgroup of the group of automorphisms of the range idealBE ofE inB. We determine the kernel of the canonical mapping into the Picard group ofBE in terms of the group of quasi inner automorphisms ofBE. As a by-product we identify the group of bistrict automorphisms of the algebra of adjointable operators onE modulo inner automorphisms as a subgroup of the (opposite of the) Picard group.

To a semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field, we associate a planar algebra defined by generators and relations and show that it is a connected, irreducible, spherical, non-degenerate planar algebra with non-zero modulus and of depth two. This association is shown to yield a bijection between (the isomorphism classes, on both sides, of) such objects.

This article is an elaboration of a talk given at an international conference on Operator Theory, Quantum Probability, and Noncommutative Geometry held during December 20–23, 2004, at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. The lecture was meant for a general audience, and also prospective research students, the idea of the quantum cohomology based on the Gromov-Witten invariants. Of course there are many important aspects that are not discussed here.

We study homogeneous quantum Lévy processes and fields with independent additive increments over a noncommutative *-monoid. These are described by infinitely divisible generating state functionals, invariant with respect to an endomorphic injective action of a symmetry semigroup. A strongly covariant GNS representation for the conditionally positive logarithmic functionals of these states is constructed in the complex Minkowski space in terms of canonical quadruples and isometric representations on the underlying pre-Hilbert field space. This is of much use in constructing quantum stochastic representations of homogeneous quantum Lévy fields on Itô monoids, which is a natural algebraic way of defining dimension free, covariant quantum stochastic integration over a space-time indexing set.

In this paper a quantum stochastic integral representation theorem is obtained for unbounded regular martingales with respect to multidimensional quantum noise. This simultaneously extends results of Parthasarathy and Sinha to unbounded martingales and those of the author to multidimensions.

A new method for the construction of Fock-adapted quantum stochastic operator cocycles is outlined, and its use is illustrated by application to a number of examples arising in physics and probability. The construction uses the Trotter-Kato theorem and a recent characterisation of such cocycles in terms of an associated family of contraction semigroups.

We explain the notion of minimality for an equivariant spectral triple and show that the triple for the quantumSU (2) group constructed by Chakraborty and Pal in  is minimal. We also give a decomposition of the spectral triple constructed by Dabrowskiet al  in terms of the minimal triple constructed in .
