Title: Infinitely many singular interactions on noncompact manifolds

Abstract

We show that the ground state energy is bounded from below when there are infinitely many attractive delta function potentials placed in arbitrary locations, while all being separated at least by a minimum distance, on two dimensional non-compact manifold. To facilitate the reading of the paper, we first present the arguments in the setting of Cartan–Hadamard manifolds and then subsequently discuss the general case. For this purpose, we employ the heat kernel techniques as well as some comparison theorems of Riemannian geometry, thus generalizing the arguments in the flat case following the approach presented in Albeverio et al. (2004). - Highlights: • Schrödinger-operator for infinitely many singular interactions on noncompact manifolds. • Proof of the finiteness of the ground-state energy.

  • This work is intended as an attempt to study the nonperturbative renormalization of bound state problem of finitely many Dirac-delta interactions on Riemannian manifolds, S{sup 2}, H{sup 2}, and H{sup 3}. We formulate the problem in terms of a finite dimensional matrix, called the characteristic matrix {phi}. The bound state energies can be found from the characteristic equation {phi}(-{nu}{sup 2})A=0. The characteristic matrix can be found after a regularization and renormalization by using a sharp cut-off in the eigenvalue spectrum of the Laplacian, as it is done in the flat space, or using the heat kernel method. These two approachesmore » are equivalent in the case of compact manifolds. The heat kernel method has a general advantage to find lower bounds on the spectrum even for compact manifolds as shown in the case of S{sup 2}. The heat kernels for H{sup 2} and H{sup 3} are known explicitly, thus we can calculate the characteristic matrix {phi}. Using the result, we give lower bound estimates of the discrete spectrum.« less

  • A perturbation problem is singular when the straightforward expansion in powers of a small parameter fails to describe the exact solution qualitatively in some region of interest. I formulate singular perturbations on manifolds in a coordinate-free way suitable for treating problems in general relativity and other field theories. I define uniformity as the ideal sought. Uniformity leads to internal criteria, such as matching, for validity. Subsequent papers will apply this formalism to (1) the problem of motion in general relativity (and other theories), (2) problems in which the causal structure or topology change qualitatively as the result of an apparentlymore » small perturbation, and (3) generalization of some conventional singular perturbation methods and potential improvements in their reliability.« less
  • The question of the classification of the phase portraits of optimal synthesis in a neighbourhood of a singular universal manifold is discussed for systems of constant rank that are affine in control. Both phase state and control are assumed to be many-dimensional. The classification is based on the order of the singular extremals and the property of involutiveness (or otherwise) of the velocity indicator. The synthesis of optimal trajectories is shown to be a space fibred over the base W consisting of singular optimal trajectories; its fibres are non-singular optimal trajectories. If the control is many-dimensional, then W is amore » stratified manifold. In the involutive case the fibres are one-dimensional. In the non-involutive case the fibres are many-dimensional and contain chattering trajectories; the dimension of the fibres and the structure of the field of trajectories in the fibres depend on the order of the singular extremals.« less
  • We construct families of spinless two-particle unitary cross sections that possess a nontrivial discrete phase-shift ambiguity, with in general an infinite number of nonvanishing partial waves. A numerical investigation reveals that some of the previously known finite Crichton ambiguities are merely special cases of the newly constructed examples.
