### Short examples that are/are not quantum-ergodic

Are there any considerably short examples of manifolds that are/aren't quantum ergodic, or quantum unique ergodic?
Note that a (compact) Riemannian manifold is said to be quantum ergodic if ...

### Quantization of a classical system (e.g. the case of a billard)

There has been already several questions asking for an introduction to quantum mechanics
for a mathematician, but this ons is slightly different, and more restrictive. I know (some)
quantum mechanics, ...

### Stationary, ergodic measures from the structuralist point of view

Stationary, ergodic measures are a class of objects very familiar to probabilists. In a sense, these are the weakest generalization of the classic case of independent, identically distributed random ...

### “Uncertainty principle” for self-adjoint operators in a finite von Neumann algebra

Let $M\subset B(\mathcal H)$ be a finite von Neumann algebra of bounded operators on a Hilbert space $\mathcal H$., let $P\in M$ be a self-adjoint operator with a pure-point spectrum (for example a ...

### Poincare Recurrence and Dense Sets

This is kind of a spin-off of the question asked here. Take the interval $X:=[0,1]$ with $\mu$ being standard Lebesgue measure. Let $f$ be a measure preserving map $f:[0,1]\rightarrow [0,1]$. The ...

### What is known about first return times to Markov partitions for Anosov diffeomorphisms?

Consider an Anosov diffeomorphism $T: M \rightarrow M$ and a corresponding Markov partition $\mathcal{R}$ of $M$. For $x \in M$, let $\mathcal{R}(x)$ denote the element of $\mathcal{R}$ containing $x$ ...

### Does it help to learn statistical mechanics in order to learn thermodynamic formalism?

Does it help to learn statistical mechanics or thermodynamics (as in physics or mathematical physics) in order to learn thermodynamic formalism: the study of equilibrium states, Gibbs measure, maximal ...
