Bachelor and Master Seminar Wintersemester 2016/17

[ Program | References | Dates | Links ]


This seminar contains some basics of deformation quantization. They can be treated at different levels, depending on the background of the student. You can find the basic ideas and the story of deformation quantization here and in the lecture notes An Introduction to Deformation Quantization.


  1. The Groenewold-van-Hove Theorem
  2. Standard and Weyl ordering
  3. Wick and anti-Wick ordering
  4. Integral forms for star products
  5. Asymptotic expansion and convergence of star products
  6. GNS construction
  7. Hochschild complex in R^n
  8. Hochschild-Kostant-Rosenberg Theorem
  9. Kontsevich formula
