  • The purpose of this paper is to give a brief review on the author's approach to define 3-manifold invariants using representations of modular groups appearing in conformal field theory on Riemann surfaces. After the Witten's discovery of 3-manifold invariants based on Chern-Simons gauge theory. Reshetikhin and Turaev gave a Dehn surgery formula for Witten invariant, which was studied extensively by Kirby and Melvin and others. In this paper the authors describe the nature of these representations. The representations of the mapping class groups discussed in this paper are projectively linear and we write down the associated 2-cocyle in a combinatorialmore » way. The authors also show that these representations are unitary. Combining this unitarity with the comparison of our approach and the Dehn surgery formula, the authors give a lower estimate of the Heegaard genus of a closed orientable 3-manifold by means of the Witten invariant. In this paper the authors discuss the case of SU(2) WZW model at level K.« less
  • A symmetry in quantum mechanics is described by the projective representations of a Lie symmetry group that transforms between physical quantum states such that the square of the modulus of the states is invariant. The Heisenberg commutation relations that are fundamental to quantum mechanics must be valid in all of these physical states. This paper shows that the maximal quantum symmetry group, whose projective representations preserve the Heisenberg commutation relations in this manner, is the inhomogeneous symplectic group. The projective representations are equivalent to the unitary representations of the central extension of the inhomogeneous symplectic group. This centrally extended groupmore » is the semidirect product of the cover of the symplectic group and the Weyl-Heisenberg group. Its unitary irreducible representations are computed explicitly using the Mackey representation theorems for semidirect product groups.« less

  • Given C/sub 6/, V/sub 6/, H/sub 6/, and E/sub 6/ of signature +++--+--, these matrices unite certain Dirac tensors and de Broglie tensors. Divergences, the fusion'' theorem, non-conservation of parity in weak interactions, and a particular transformation (m = -m) result automatically in covariance on C/sub 6/. (tr-auth)
