Symplectic Geometry and Quantum Noise

Joint IAS-PU Symplectic Geometry Seminar
Topic:Symplectic Geometry and Quantum Noise
Speaker:Leonid Polterovich
Affiliation:Tel Aviv University and SCGP
Date:Friday, October 5
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/S-101

We discuss a quantum counterpart, in the sense of the Berezin-Toeplitz quantization, of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from "hard" symplectic geometry. It turns out that they can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables in operational quantum mechanics.
