### Rigorous proof of the pentagon identity

I briefly recall the statement of the pentagon identity in quantum dilogarithm and cluster algebra. For $b\in\mathbb{C}$ with $\operatorname{Re}(b)>0,\operatorname{Im}(b)\geq0$, Faddeev, Kashaev ...

### Sherman-Davis type inequalities for non-negative operator in a Hilbert space with trivial kernel

Recently I read Rupert L. Frank's paper "Eigenvalue Bounds for the Fractional Laplacian: A Review". For a domain $\Omega\subset\mathbf R^n$, there are two different definitions of ...

### Functional inverse problem based on a variational principle

I am trying to solve an inverse problem based on variational principle. I will first present a forward problem that is already solved, and then present the inverse problem that I am trying currently ...

### What would be the explicit formula for the remainder in Taylor's theorem for functional calculus? [closed]

Let $f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$ be a smooth function and $A,B$ be $n \times n$ self-adjoint matrices that commute. Then, I see that $f(A+tB)$ is a well-defined matrix-valued function for real ...

### Exponentials and other functions of sums of anti-commuting operators

I know that if $A$ and $B$ are commuting operators, then $\exp(A+B) = \exp(A) \exp(B)$. Is there a similar formula if $A$ and $B$ are anti-commuting (that is, $AB+BA = 0$)? I have developed a formula ...

### Small perturbation to a commuting family of hermitian matrices will hurt the nice properties?

Let $A_1, \dotsc A_N$ be a collection of finite Hermitian matrices that commute with one another and all have the matrix $2$-norm as $1$. Here $N$ is large but fixed. Then, they are simultaneously ...

### “Taylor series” is to “Volterra series” as “Laurent series” is to _________?

Preamble My question is similar to an earlier MathOverflow question: “Taylor series” is to “Volterra series” as “Padé approximant” is to _________? which I just answered (hopefully my first ever ...

### An inverse to functional calculus

Given a Borel function $f:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow\mathbb{R}\cup\{\infty\}$, functional calculus allows to calculate $F(x)$ for any unbounded selfadjoint operator $x$ on a Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$, ...

### EM-wave equation in matter from Lagrangian

Note I am not sure if this post is of relevance for this platform, but I already asked the question in Physics Stack Exchange and in Mathematics Stack Exchange without success. Setup Let's suppose a ...

### Interesting examples of spectral decompositions of BOUNDED operators with both continuous and discrete spectrum

I would like to have a few basic examples of bounded self-adjoint operators $T$ (more generally bounded normal would be fine) on a Hilbert space $(H,\langle,\rangle)$ for which the following criteria ...

### Sufficient condition for gradient existence in Hilbert spaces

Let $\mathbb H$ a Hilbert space and $N:\mathbb H\to \mathbb H$ a continuous nonlinear mapping. In Fonda and Mawhin (Iterative and variational methods for the solvability of some semilinear equations ...
Let $H$ be a Hilbert space over $\mathbb{C}$. Fix a self-adjoint operator $A:D(A)\rightarrow H$ and a Borel function $f:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$. The operator $f(A)$ is defined by the spectral ...
