Oleg Smolyanov : Differential properties of measures and quantum anomalies.

4:00pm, CM221

Quantum anomaly is the situation when the quantum system, which is obtained by a quantization of a Hamiltonian system, that is invariant with respect to a transformation, is not any more invariant with respect to the same transformation. In the talk the origin of the quantum anomaly is explained using the properties of derivatives, of measures on infinite-dimensional spaces, along vector field generating the transformations. In particular, the contradiction between the explanation of the origin of quantum anomalies, presented in the books by Cartier and Cecile deWitt-Morett on the one hand and by Fujikawa and Suzuki on the other hand, is discussed.
