By Pierre Emile Cartier, Pierre E. Cartier, Bernard Julia, Pierre Moussa, Pierre Vanhove

This ebook provides pedagogical contributions on chosen themes touching on quantity thought, Theoretical Physics and Geometry. The elements are composed of lengthy self-contained pedagogical lectures by means of shorter contributions on particular topics geared up through topic. so much classes and brief contributions cross as much as the new advancements within the fields; a few of them keep on with their author?s unique viewpoints. There are contributions on Random Matrix idea, Quantum Chaos, Non-commutative Geometry, Zeta features, and Dynamical platforms. The chapters of this publication are prolonged models of lectures given at a gathering entitled quantity thought, Physics and Geometry, held at Les Houches in March 2003, which collected mathematicians and physicists.

These relations give D f (d(y, SgS −1 (y)))dµ = S −1 (D) f (z, g(z))dµ and the last integral is taken over the image of the fundamental domain under the transformation S −1 . Therefore S D f (d(y, SgS −1 (y)))dµ = S S −1 (D) f (d(z, g(z)))dµ . For different S images S −1 (D) are different and do not overlap. The integrand does not depend on S and S D f (d(y, SgS −1 (y)))dµ = where Dg f (d(z, g(z)))dµ S −1 (D) . Dg = S −1 The sum of all images S (D) will cover the whole upper half plane but we have to sum not over all S but only over S factorized by the action the group of matrices commuting with a fixed matrix g.

The free motion equations x x = kt + y with a fixed vector k. One has k= x−y t and the conservation of energy |k|2 = E determines the time of motion t= |x − y| √ . E Therefore S(x, y) = √ E|x − y| which, evidently, is the solution of the free Hamilton–Jacobi equation. The next order equation 2∇S∇A + ∆SA = 0 38 Eugene Bogomolny is equivalent to the conservation of current. Indeed, for the semiclassical wave function (35) 1 J = (Ψ ∗ ∇Ψ − Ψ ∇Ψ ∗ ) = A2 ∇S 2i and ∇J = A(2∇A∇S + A∆S) = 0 . The solution of the above transport equation has the form A(x, y) = ∂2S π 1 det − ∂ti⊥ ∂tf ⊥ (2π )(f +1)/2 ki kf 1/2 where ti⊥ and tf ⊥ are coordinates perpendicular to the trajectory in the initial, y, and final, x, points respectively and ki , kf are the initial and final momenta.
