### Lower bounds for truncated moments of Gaussian measures on Hilbert space

Let $\mu_C$ be a centered Gaussian probability Borel measure on a real separable Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$ with covariance operator $C$. Denote the ball with radius $r$ in $\mathcal{H}$ centered at ...

### Reference request: Gaussian measures on duals of nuclear spaces

I am interested in constructive quantum field theory where Gaussian measures on duals of nuclear spaces (specifically, the space of tempered distribution $\mathcal{S}'(\mathbb{R}^n)$) play a key role. ...

### Fréchet-valued symbols

Denote by $S^m \left ( \mathbb{R}^k \times \mathbb{R}^n \right)$ the usual space of symbols. Now let $E$ be a Fréchet Space. We can then define $S^m \left ( \mathbb{R}^k \times \mathbb{R}^n; E \right)$...

### Definition of second quantization

The standard textbook for second quantization is Reed & Simon. However, I am a bit confused with their notation. They write: Let $\mathscr{H}$ be a Hilbert space, $\mathcal{F}(\mathscr{H})$ the ...

### How are coordinate charts constructed in noncommutative geometry?

In noncommutative geometry, one is given a triple $(A,D,H)$, where $A$ is a commutative C* algebra, $H$ is a Hilbert space, and $D$ is an operator. There is a somewhat long list of conditions that ...

### Large JN-sets in Banach spaces

For every infinite-dimensional Banach space $X$ there is a weak*-null sequence in the unit sphere of $X^\ast$. Does this extend under suitable circumstances to the non-separable setting? Say that $X$ ...

### A continuous injection from the Hilbert cube to the real line?

Continuing an earlier "too good to be true" question that I posted recently, the same holds for the present question: Is there a continuous injection from the Hilbert cube $[0,1]^{\Bbb N}$ ...

### Quasimode construction on a compact Riemannian manifold

Let $M$ be a closed Riemannian manifold, $\Delta$ be the usual Laplace-Betrami operator on $M$ and $\gamma : [0, L] \to M$ be a stable elliptic periodic geodesic of length $L$. I have heard in several ...

### Solution to $a=e^t (t-r_1)(t-r_2)$ with Lambert $W$ function, where $r_1, r_2$ are complex

Lambert $W$ works when $r_1$, and $r_2$ are real. However, I am trying to solve the equation when $r_1$, and $r_2$ are complex numbers.

### Is there a uniformly continuous injective image of $(0,1)\setminus\Bbb Q$ in the Cantor space?

It seems too good to be possible, but: Is there a uniformly continuous injective image of $(0,1)\setminus\Bbb Q$ in the Cantor space? Here, the Cantor space $\{0,1\}^{\Bbb N}$ is equipped with the ...

### Takesaki's duality in representation theory of $C^*$-algebras

In M.Takesaki's 1967 article titled A Duality in the Representation Theory of C-Algebras*, admissible operator fields are defined in order to generalize Gelfand transform to a non-abelian setting. ...

### Dependence of functional integral on the function space

In physics, the following functional integral is considered \begin{gather} Z[J]= \int Df \exp(-\int d^dx( f\Box f+\lambda f^4 +Jf )) \end{gather} It is usually said that the integration is performed ...

### Series representation of functions

Let $H$ be a Hilbert space, consisting of functions $f:\mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$. Let $$V = \left\{ f_J \in H: f_J= \sum_{j=1}^J c_j^{(J)} g_j, c_j^{(J)}\in\mathbb R, J\in \mathbb N \right\}$$ ...

### Existence of the limit of periodic measures

Let $T: X \to X$ be a continuous map over a compact metric space. We say that a measure $\mu$ is $T$-invariant if $T_{\ast} \mu= \mu$. We denote by $M(X, T)$ the space of all $T$-invariant Borel ...

### Prove if the fractional Laplacian of a function is bounded

Take $s\in (0, 1)$. I am trying to understand if $(-\Delta)^s (\log(1+x^2))$ is bounded, that is if there exists $R>0$ such that $|(-\Delta)^s (\log(1+x^2))|\le R$. Here $(-\Delta)^s$ is the ...

### In what sense does the Laplacian on compact intervals converge to one on all of $\mathbb{R}$?

I guess this topic may have been addressed somewhere but I cannot really find a reference myself, so I ask here. For each $N \in \mathbb{N}$, consider the Laplacian $\Delta$ on the interval $[-N,N]$ ...

### Question about the ''crater'' in mountain-pass theorem while reading a paper of solving mean-field equation by mountain-pass theorem

Actually, I'm reading a paper which finds the saddle point of a functional, of course the unbounded below energy functional will suggest a potential saddle, but the structure of mountain pass is the ...

### Growth rate of elementary sequences

We consider three sequences $(x_n),(y_n),(z_n)$, where $(x_n) \in \ell^1$ is positive and the other two sequences are merely assumed to be positive, i.e. $y_n,z_n \ge 0$ where $0<z_n<z_{n+1}$ is ...
