QMAP Colloquium: Superintegrable systems

Special Events

Speaker: Nicolai Reshetikhin, UC Berkeley
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, Nov 21 2017, 11:00AM

A superintegrable Hamiltonian system on a 2n-dimensional phase space M is a Hamiltonian dynamical system with k Poisson commuting integrals of motion and 2n-k integrals of motion, which form a Poisson subalgebra in the algebra of functions on M. Commuting integrals generate the Poisson center of this subalgebra. Invariant tori in such systems are isotropic k-dimensional submanifolds. After an overview of superintegrability a series of example which will be given followed by a discussion of quantization.

Coffee at 10:45. Lunch with the speaker in MSB courtyard straight after the talk.
