Spectral equations for the modular oscillator

Motivated by applications for non-perturbative topological strings in toric Calabi--Yau manifolds, we discuss the spectral problem for a pair of commuting modular conjugate (in the sense of Faddeev) Harper type operators, corresponding to a special case of the quantized mirror curve of local $\mathbb{P}^1\times\mathbb{P}^1$ and complex values of Planck's constant. We illustrate our analytical results by numerical calculations.

This paper concerns with some of the results related to the singular solutions of certain types of non-linear integrable differential equations (NIDE) and behavior of the singularities of those equations. The approach heavily relies on the Method of Operator Identities which proved to be a powerful tool in different areas such as interpolation problems, spectral analysis, inverse spectral problems, dynamic systems, non-linear equations. We formulate and solve a number of problems (direct and inverse) related to the singular solutions of sinh-Gordon, non-linear Schr\"{o}dinger and modified Korteweg - de Vries equations. Read More


We consider an abstract pseudo-Hamiltonian for the nuclear optical model, given by a dissipative operator of the form $H = H_V - i C^* C$, where $H_V = H_0 + V$ is self-adjoint and $C$ is a bounded operator. We study the wave operators associated to $H$ and $H_0$. We prove that they are asymptotically complete if and only if $H$ does not have spectral singularities on the real axis. Read More


We consider sequences of random quantum channels defined using the Stinespring formula with Haar-distributed random orthogonal matrices. For any fixed sequence of input states, we study the asymptotic eigenvalue distribution of the outputs through tensor powers of random channels. We show that the input states achieving minimum output entropy are tensor products of maximally entangled states (Bell states) when the tensor power is even. Read More


For a determinantal point process induced by the reproducing kernel of the weighted Bergman space $A^2(U, \omega)$ over a domain $U \subset \mathbb{C}^d$, we establish the mutual absolute continuity of reduced Palm measures of any order provided that the domain $U$ contains a non-constant bounded holomorphic function. The result holds in all dimensions. The argument uses the $H^\infty(U)$-module structure of $A^2(U, \omega)$. Read More


We present a detailed analysis of the orbital stability of the Pais-Uhlenbeck oscillator, using Lie-Deprit series and Hamiltonian normal form theories. In particular, we explicitly describe the reduced phase space for this Hamiltonian system and give a proof for the existence of stable orbits for a certain class of self-interaction, found numerically in previous works.

We demonstrate that the geometric volume of a soliton coincides with the thermodynamical volume also for field theories with higher-dimensional vacuum manifolds (e.g., for gauged scalar field theories supporting vortices or monopoles). Read More


In this paper we study the probability distribution of the position of a tagged particle in the $q$-deformed Totally Asymmetric Zero Range Process ($q$-TAZRP) with site dependent jumping rates. For a finite particle system, it is derived from the transition probability previously obtained by Wang and Waugh. We also provide the probability distribution formula for a tagged particle in the $q$-TAZRP with the so-called step initial condition in which infinitely many particles occupy one single site and all other sites are unoccupied.

For the multi-particle Anderson model with correlated random potential in the continuum, we show under fairly general assumptions on the inter-particle interaction and the random external potential, the Anderson localization which consists of both the spectral, exponential localization and the strong dynamical localization. The localization results are proven near the lower spectral edge of the almost sure spectrum and the proofs require the uniform log-H\"older continuity assumption of the probability distribution functions of the random field in addition of the Rosenblatt's strongly mixing condition.

We consider Pauli--Dirac fermion submitted to an inhomogeneous magnetic field. It is showed that the propagator of the neutral Dirac particle with an anomalous magnetic moment in an external linear magnetic field is the causal Green function $S^{c}(x_{b},x_{a})$ of the Pauli--Dirac equation. The corresponding Green function is calculated via path integral method in global projection, giving rise to the exact eigenspinors expressions. Read More


We revisit the notion of quantum Lie algebra of symmetries of a noncommutative spacetime, its elements are shown to be the generators of infinitesimal transformations and are naturally identified with physical observables. Wave equations on noncommutative spaces are derived from a quantum Hodge star operator. This general noncommutative geometry construction is then exemplified in the case of k-Minkowski spacetime.
