What does it mean to quantize a symplectic map $\chi$? In deformation quantization, it means to construct an automorphism of the $*$ algebra associated to $\chi$. In quantum chaos it means to construct unitary operators $U_{\chi}$ such that $A \to U_{\chi} A U_{\chi}^*$ defines an automorphism of the algebra of observables. In geometric quantization and in PDE it means to construct a unitary Fourier integral (or Toeplitz) operator associated to the graph of $\chi$. We compare the definitions in...

Gaussian beams exist along all closed geodesics of a Zoll surface, despite the fact that the algorithm for constructing them assumes that the closed geodesics are non-degenerate. Similarly, there exists a global Birkhoff normal for a Zoll Laplacian despite the degeneracy. We explain why both algorithms work in the Zoll case and give an exact formula for the sub-principal normal form invariant. In the case of "maximally degenerate" Zoll Laplacians, this invariant vanishes and we obtain...

We study the off-diagonal decay of Bergman kernels $\Pi_{h^k}(z,w)$ and Berezin kernels $P_{h^k}(z,w)$ for ample invariant line bundles over compact toric projective \kahler manifolds of dimension $m$. When the metric is real analytic, $P_{h^k}(z,w) \simeq k^m \exp - k D(z,w)$ where $D(z,w)$ is the diastasis. When the metric is only $C^{\infty}$ this asymptotic cannot hold for all $(z,w)$ since the diastasis is not even defined for all $(z,w)$ close to the diagonal. We prove that for general...

This paper concerns the inverse spectral problem for analytic simple surfaces of revolution. By `simple' is meant that there is precisely one critical distance from the axis of revolution. Such surfaces have completely integrable geodesic flows with global action-angle variables and possess global quantum Birkhoff normal forms (Colin de Verdiere). We prove that isospectral surfaces within this class are isometric. The first main step is to show that the normal form at meridian geodesics is a...

Quantized contact transformations are Toeplitz operators over a contact manifold $(X,\alpha)$ of the form $U_{\chi} = \Pi A \chi \Pi$, where $\Pi : H^2(X) \to L^2(X)$ is a Szego projector, where $\chi$ is a contact transformation and where $A$ is a pseudodifferential operator over $X$. They provide a flexible alternative to the Kahler quantization of symplectic maps, and encompass many of the examples in the physics literature, e.g. quantized cat maps and kicked rotors. The index problem is to...

This is a survey on eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on Riemannian manifolds (mainly compact and without boundary). We discuss both local results obtained by analyzing eigenfunctions on small balls, and global results obtained by wave equation methods. Among the main topics are nodal sets, quantum limits, and $L^p$ norms of global eigenfunctions.

We develop analogues for Grauert tubes of real analytic Riemannian manifolds (M,g) of some basic notions of pluri-potential theory, such as the Siciak extremal function. The basic idea is to use analytic continuations of eigenfunctions in place of polynomials or sections of powers of positive line bundles for pluripotential theory. The analytically continued Poisson-wave kernel plays the role of Bergman kernel. The main results are Weyl laws in the complex domain, distribution of complex zeros...

We give a simple proof of Tian's theorem that the Kodaira embeddings associated to a positive line bundle over a compact complex manifold are asymptotically isometric. The proof is based on the diagonal asymptotics of the Szego kernel (i.e. the orthogonal projection onto holomorphic sections). In deriving these asymptotics we use the Boutet de Monvel-Sjostrand parametrix for the Szego kernel.

This is part of a series of papers on the inverse spectral problem for bounded analytic plane domains. Here, we use the trace formula established in the first paper (`Balian-Bloch trace formula') to explicitly calculate wave trace invariants associated to bouncing ball orbits and dihedral rays. We use these invariants to prove that simply connected bounded analytic plane domains with one symmetry (which reverses a bouncing ball orbit of fixed length L) are spectrally determined in this class.

We give a rigorous calculation of the large N limit of the partition function of SU(N) gauge theory on a 2D cylinder in the case where one boundary holomony is a so-called special element of type $\rho$. By MacDonald's identity, the partition function factors in this case as a product over positive roots and it is straightforward to calculate the large N asymptotics of the free energy. We obtain the unexpected result that the free energy in these cases is asymptotic to N times a functional of...

We consider the eigenvalue pair correlation problem for certain integrable quantum maps on the 2-sphere. The classical maps are time one maps of Hamiltonian flows of perfect Morse functions. The quantizations are unitary operators on spaces of homogeneous holomorphic polynomials of degree N in two complex variables. There are N eigenphases on the unit circle and the pair correlation problem is to determine the distribution of spacings between the eigenphases on the length scale of the mean...

The main theme is the universality of statistics of zeros and critical points of (generalized) polynomials of degree $N$ on length scales of order $\frac{D}{\sqrt{N}}$ (complex case), resp. $\frac{D}{N}$ (real case).

Let $(\Omega, g)$ be a real analytic Riemannian manifold with real analytic boundary $\partial \Omega$. Let $\psi_{\lambda}$ be an eigenfunction of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator $\Lambda$ of $(\Omega, g, \partial \Omega)$ of eigenvalue $\lambda$. Let $\mathcal N_{\lambda_j}$ be its nodal set. Then $\mathcal H^{n-2} (\mathcal N_{\lambda}) \leq C_{g, \Omega} \lambda.$ This proves a conjecture of F. H. Lin and K. Bellova.

This paper contains a very simple and general proof that eigenfunctions of quantizations of classically ergodic systems become uniformly distributed in phase space. This ergodicity property of eigenfunctions f is shown to follow from a convexity inequality for the invariant states (Af,f). This proof of ergodicity of eigenfunctions simplifies previous proofs (due to A.I. Shnirelman, Colin de Verdiere and the author) and extends the result to the much more general framework of C* dynamical...

We prove that a two-component mirror-symmetric analytic obstacle in the plane is determined by its resonance poles among such obstacles. The proof is essentially the same as in the interior case (part II of the series). A so-called interior/exterior duality formula is used to simplify the proof. A fair amount of exposition is included for the sake of completeness.

This short note proves that a Laplacian cannot be quantum uniquely ergodic if it possesses a quasimode of order zero which (i) has a singular limit, and (ii) is a linear combination of a uniformly bounded number of eigenfunctions (modulo an o(1) error). Bouncing ball quasimodes of the stadium are believed to have this property (E.J. Heller et al) and so are analogous quasimodes recently constructed by H. Donnelly on certain non-positively curved surfaces. The main ingredient is the proof that...

This paper concerns spectral invariants of the Laplacian on a compact Riemannian manifold (M,g) known as wave invariants. If U(t) denotes the wave group of (M,g), then the trace Tr U(t) is singular when t = 0 or when ti is the length of a closed geodesic. It has a special type of singularity expansion at each length and the coefficients are known as the wave invariants. Our main purpose is to calculate the wave invariants explicitly in terms of curvature, Jacobi fields etc. when the closed...

It rapidly reviews some of the material in the previous survey of the same title (arXiv:math/0402356) and then discusses some relatively new results (rigidity results for the ellipse, phase shifts in scattering theory). The last section poses a number of open problems involving "inverse results for oscillatory integrals".

It does not seem to have been observed previously that the classical Bernstein polynomials $B_N(f)(x)$ are closely related to the Bergman-Szego kernels $\Pi_N$ for the Fubini-Study metric on $\CP^1$: $B_N(f)(x)$ is the Berezin symbol of the Toeplitz operator $\Pi_N f(N^{-1} D_{\theta})$. The relation suggests a generalization of Bernstein polynomials to any toric Kahler variety and Delzant polytope $P$. When $f$ is smooth, $B_N(f)(x)$ admits a complete asymptotic expansion. Integrating it over...

Under a certain matrix-metric correspondence, each positive definite Hermitian matrix corresponds to a Kahler metric on M. The one and two point functions of the random metric are calculated in a variety of limits as k and t tend to infinity. In the...

This is a scattering-theoretic analogue of isospectral domains.

In this paper, we show sequential compactness of each isophasal class of domains. To do this we define the...

Geodesics on the infinite dimensional symmetric space $\hcal$ of K\"ahler metrics in a fixed K\"ahler class on a projective K\"ahler manifold X are solutions of a homogeneous complex Monge-Amp\`ere equation in $X \times A$, where $A \subset \C$ is an annulus. They are analogues of 1PS (one-parameter subgroups) on symmetric spaces $G_{\C}/G$. Donaldson, Arezzo-Tian and Phong-Sturm raised the question whether Monge-Amp\`ere geodesics can be approximated by 1PS geodesics in the...

We relate two types of phase space distributions associated to eigenfunctions $\phi_{ir_j}$ of the Laplacian on a compact hyperbolic surface $X_{\Gamma}$: (1) Wigner distributions $\int_{S^*\X} a dW_{ir_j}= < Op(a)\phi_{ir_j}, \phi_{ir_j}>_{L^2(\X)}$, which arise in quantum chaos. They are invariant under the wave group. (2) Patterson-Sullivan distributions $PS_{ir_j}$, which are the residues of the dynamical zeta-functions $\lcal(s; a): = \sum_\gamma...

This article contains a detailed study, in the toric case, of the test configuration geodesic rays defined by Phong-Sturm. We show that the `Bergman approximations' of Phong-Sturm converge in C^1 to the geodesic ray and that the geodesic ray itself is C^{1,1} and no better. The \kahler metrics associated to the geodesic ray of potentials are discontinuous across certain hypersurfaces and are degenerate on certain open sets. A novelty in the analysis is the connection between Bergman metrics,...

This article determines the asymptotics of the expected Riesz s-energy of the zero set of a Gaussian random systems of polynomials of degree N as the degree N tends to infinity in all dimensions and codimensions. The asymptotics are proved more generally for sections of any positive line bundle over any compact Kaehler manifold. In comparison with the results on energies of zero sets in one complex dimension due to Qi Zhong (arXiv:0705.2000) (see also [arXiv:0705.2000]), the zero sets have...

We extend results of Zeitouni-Zelditch on large deviations principles for zeros of Gaussian random polynomials $s$ in one complex variable to certain non-Gaussian ensembles that we call $P(\phi)_2$ random polynomials. The probability measures are of the form $e^{- S(f)} df$ where the actions $S(f)$ are finite dimensional analgoues of those of $P(\phi)_2$ quantum field theory. The speed and rate function are the same as in the associated Gaussian case. As a corollary, we prove that the expected...

We introduce several notions of `random fewnomials', i.e. random polynomials with a fixed number f of monomials of degree N. The f exponents are chosen at random and then the coefficients are chosen to be Gaussian random, mainly from the SU(m + 1) ensemble. The results give limiting formulas as N goes to infinity for the expected distribution of complex zeros of a system of k random fewnomials in m variables. When k = m, for SU(m + 1) polynomials, the limit is the Monge-Ampere measure of a...

In this paper we show that bounded analytic domains in $\R^n$ with mirror symmetries across all coordinate axes are spectrally determined among other such domains. Our approach builds on finding concrete formulas for the wave invariants at a bouncing ball orbit. The wave invariants are calculated from a stationary phase expansion applied to a well-constructed microlocal parametrix for the trace of the resolvent.

We study the asymptotic distribution of critical values of random holomorphic `polynomials' s_n on a Kaehler manifold M as the degree n tends to infinity. By `polynomial' of degree n we mean a holomorphic section of the nth power of a positive Hermitian holomorphic line bundle $(L, h). In the special case M = CP^m and L = O(1), and h is the Fubini-Study metric, the random polynomials are the SU(m + 1) polynomials. By a critical value we mean the norm ||s_n||_h of s_n at a non-zero critical...
