Title: Inequivalent quantizations of the N=3 Calogero model with scale and mirror-S{sub 3} symmetry

Abstract

We study the inequivalent quantizations of the N=3 Calogero model by separation of variables, in which the model decomposes into the angular and the radial parts. Our inequivalent quantizations respect the 'mirror-S{sub 3}' invariance (which realizes the symmetry under the cyclic permutations of the particles) and the scale invariance in the limit of vanishing harmonic potential. We find a two-parameter family of novel quantizations in the angular part and classify the eigenstates in terms of the irreducible representations of the S{sub 3} group. The scale invariance restricts the quantization in the radial part uniquely, except for the eigenstates coupled to the lowest two angular levels for which two types of boundary conditions are allowed independently from all upper levels. It is also found that the eigenvalues corresponding to the singlet representations of the S{sub 3} are universal (parameter-independent) in the family, whereas those corresponding to the doublets of the S{sub 3} are dependent on one of the parameters. These properties are shown to be a consequence of the spectral preserving SU(2) (or its subgroup U(1)) transformations allowed in the family of inequivalent quantizations.

  • We solve the eigenvalue problem of the D{sub N}-type of Calogero model by mapping it to a set of decoupled quantum harmonic oscillators through a similarity transformation. In particular, we construct the eigenfunctions of this Calogero model from those of bosonic harmonic oscillators having either all even parity or all odd parity. It turns out that the eigenfunctions of this model are orthogonal with respect to a nontrivial inner product, which can be derived from the quasi-Hermiticity property of the corresponding conserved quantities.
  • New shell model Hamiltonians are derived for the T=1 part of the residual interaction in the f{sub 5/2} p{sub 3/2} p{sub 1/2} g{sub 9/2} model space based on the analysis and fit of the available experimental data for {sub 28}{sup 57}Ni{sub 29}-{sub 28}{sup 78}Ni{sub 50} isotopes and {sub 29}{sup 77}Cu{sub 50}-{sub 50}{sup 100}Sn{sub 50} isotones. The fit procedure, properties of the determined effective interaction as well as new results for valence-mirror symmetry and seniority isomers for nuclei near {sup 78}Ni and {sup 100}Sn are discussed.
  • The reduction of ReO{sub 4}{sup {minus}} with 2-hydrazinopyridine dihydrochloride and PPh{sub 3} gives [ReCl(PPh{sub 3}){sub 2}(NHNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)-(HNNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)]Cl{sub 2} (2). A similar reaction using 2-hydrazino-2-imidazoline and PPh{sub 3} in methanol hydrochloric acid allows the preparation of [ReCl{sub 3}(PPh{sub 3}){sub 2}(NNC{sub 3}H{sub 4}N{sub 2})] (3). The reaction of the Re(III) complex [ReCl{sub 3}(NNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}NH)(HNNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)] (1), with 2-(Ph{sub 2}P)C{sub 6}H{sub 4}SH in methanol yields [Re{l_brace}2-(Ph{sub 2}P)C{sub 6}H{sub 4}S{r_brace}-{l_brace}2-(Ph{sub 2}PO)C{sub 6}H{sub 4}S{r_brace}(NNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)(HNNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)] (4) and [Re{l_brace}2-(Ph{sub 2}P)C{sub 6}H{sub 4}S{r_brace}{sub 2}(NNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)] (5). The same precursor with 2-(Ph{sub 2}PO)-6-(Me{sub 3}Si)C{sub 6}H{sub 3}SH gives [ReCl{l_brace}2-(Ph{sub 2}PO)-6-(Me{submore » 3}Si)C{sub 6}H{sub 3}S{r_brace}(NNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)(HNNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)] (6) and with PhP(C{sub 6}H{sub 4}SH-2){sub 2} yields [Re{l_brace}PhP(C{sub 6}H{sub 4}S-2){sub 2}{r_brace}(NNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)(HNNC{sub 5}H{sub 4}N)] (7).« less
  • We investigate the problem of inequivalent quantizations of a physical system with multiply connected configuration space X. For scalar quantum theory on X we show that state vectors must be single valued if and only if the first homology group H/sub 1/(X) is trivial, or equivalently the fundamental group ..pi../sub 1/(X) is perfect. The theta structure of quantum gauge and gravitational theories is discussed in light of this result.
  • A path-integral quantization on a homogeneous space G/H is proposed, based on the guiding principle {open_quotes}first lift to G and then project to G/H{close_quotes}. It is then shown that this principle gives a simple procedure to obtain the inequivalent quantizations (superselection sectors), along with the holonomy factor (induced gauge field) found earlier by algebraic approaches. We also prove that the resulting matrix-valued path-integral is physically equivalent to the scalar-valued path-integral derived in the Dirac approach, and thereby we present a unified viewpoint to discuss the basic features of quantizing on G/H obtained in various approaches so far. {copyright} 1997 Academicmore » Press, Inc.« less
