Title: Poincare biextension and ideles on an algebraic curve

Abstract

The Weil pairing of two elements of the torsion of the Jacobian of an algebraic curve can be expressed in terms of the product of the local Hilbert symbols of two special ideles associated with the torsion elements of the Jacobian. On the other hand, Arbarello, De Concini, and Kac have constructed a central extension of the group of ideles on an algebraic curve in which the commutator is also equal up to a sign to the product of all the local Hilbert symbols of two ideles. The aim of the paper is to explain this similarity. It turns out that there exists a close connection between the Poincare biextension over the square of the Jacobian defining the Weil pairing and the central extension constructed by Arbarello, de Concini, and Kac. The latter is a quotient of a certain biextension associated with the central extension.

  • It is shown that the hierarchical model at finite volume has a symmetry group which can be decomposed into rotations and translations as the familiar Poincare groups. Using these symmetries, it is shown that the intricate sums appearing in the calculation of the high-temperature expansion of the magnetic susceptibility can be performed, at least up to the fourth order, using elementary algebraic manipulations which can be implemented with a computer. These symmetries appear more clearly if we use the two-adic fractions to label the sites. Then the new algebraic methods are applied to the calculation of quantities having a randommore » walk interpretation. In particular, it is shown that the probability of returning to the starting point after [ital m] steps has poles at [ital D]=[minus]2,[minus]4,...,[minus]2[ital m], where [ital D] is a free parameter playing a role similar to the dimensionality in nearest neighbor models.« less
  • A formalism based on real octonions is developed in order to construct an octonionic Hilbert space for the description of colored quark states. The various possible forms of scalar products and related scalars are discussed. The choice of a direction in the space of octonion units leads naturally to a representation of the Poincare group in terms of complex scalar products and complex scalars. The remaining octonion directions span the color degrees of freedom for quarks and anti-quarks. In such a Hilbert space, product states associated with color singlets are shown to form a physical quantum mechanical Hilbert space formore » the description of hadrons. Color triplets, on the other hand, correspond to unobservable parafermion states of order three. (AIP)« less
  • The space-time symmetry of noncommutative quantum field theories with a deformed quantization is described by the twisted Poincare algebra, while that of standard commutative quantum field theories is described by the Poincare algebra. Based on the equivalence of the deformed theory with a commutative field theory, the correspondence between the twisted Poincare symmetry of the deformed theory and the Poincare symmetry of a commutative theory is established. As a by-product, we obtain the conserved charge associated with the twisted Poincare transformation to make the twisted Poincare symmetry evident in the deformed theory. Our result implies that the equivalence between themore » commutative theory and the deformed theory holds in a deeper level, i.e., it holds not only in correlation functions but also in (different types of) symmetries.« less
