### Absent 2nd order terms in deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds

I am reading Kontsevich' famous paper on deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds. In section 1.4.2 on page 4 he gives the general formula for the star product associated to a Poisson structure ...

### Formal series convergence in deformation quantization and $C^*$-condition

A link between formal series convergence in deformation quantization (strict deformation quantization) and producing $C^*$-algebras instead of mere $*$-algebras (which ...

### Physical meaning of the integral cohomology condition in Souriau-Kostant pre-quantization?

The question is in the title. The form of the condition looks like the Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization formula of angular momentum, is there a link between the two formulas?

### Bohr topos and quantization

Bohrification is a natural way to construct a quantum "phase space" (with some nice insights on foundational problems like non-contextuality through Kochen-Specker etc). I was wondering, since we get ...

### Reconciling two notions of geometric quantization.

Let $(M,\omega)$ be a compact symplectic manifold and $(L,\nabla)$ a prequantum line bundle. There are two schemes to quantize this data:
Choose a polarization $P$ of $M$ and define the quantum ...

### Is the quantum algebra unique (up to isomorphism) in deformation quantization ?

Consider a Poisson algebra A (i.e. commutative algebra with Poisson bracket).
Let $\hat A$ be a deformation quantization of the algebra A. We know that construction of deformation quantization and ...

### 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, ...

### Higgs mechanism from a deformation quantization point of view

Is it possible to describe the Higgs mechanism from a deformation quantization point of view? How would one do it? Are there aspects of the Higgs mechanism and Higgs particle which one may see clearer ...

### Problem of quantization: state of the art

The "problem of quantization":
Find a vector space $Obs$ (as large as possible) of real-valued functions $f(p, q)$ on $R^{2n}$, containing the coordinate ...

### Coherent states vs quantization of Lagrangian submanifold

Coherent states http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coherent_states
are vectors in the Hilbert space which in certain sense are strongly localized
and "corresponds" to points in classical phase space (see ...
