By means of the local, iterative Lie Schwinger block-diagonalization method, in this paper we study the low-lying spectrum of the AKLT model perturbed by small, finite-range potentials and with open boundary conditions imposed at the edges of the chain. Our method allows us to control small interaction terms localized near the boundary of the chain...

It is shown that, for a class of Hamiltonians of XXZ chains in an external, longitudinal magnetic field that are small perturbations of an Ising Hamiltonian, the spectral gap above the ground-state energy remains strictly positive when the perturbation is turned on, uniformly in the length of the chain. The result is proven for both the ferromagnet...

Anzai skew-products are shown to be uniquely ergodic with respect to the fixed-point subalgebra if and only if there is a unique conditional expectation onto such a subalgebra which is invariant under the dynamics. For the particular case of skew-products, this solves a question raised by B. Abadie and K. Dykema in the wider context of C∗\documentc...

On a conformal net [Formula: see text], one can consider collections of unital completely positive maps on each local algebra [Formula: see text], subject to natural compatibility, vacuum preserving and conformal covariance conditions. We call quantum operations on [Formula: see text] the subset of extreme such maps. The usual automorphisms of [For...

The concrete monotone C⁎-algebra, that is the (unital) C⁎-algebra generated by monotone independent algebraic random variables of Bernoulli type, is characterized abstractly in terms of generators and relations and is shown to be UHF. Moreover, its Bratteli diagram is explicitly given, which allows for the computation of its K-theory.

In this paper we extend the local iterative Lie-Schwinger block-diagonalization method – introduced in [DFPR3] for quantum lattice systems with bounded interactions in arbitrary dimension– to systems with unbounded interactions, i.e., systems of bosons. We study Hamiltonians that can be written as the sum of a gapped operator consisting of a sum of...

The compact convex set of all spreadable states on the CAR algebra is shown to be a Choquet simplex of which the exchangeable states make up a proper face. Moreover, the set of rotatable states on the CAR algebra is seen to coincide with the set of exchangeable states.

The ergodic properties of the shift on both full and $m$-truncated $t$-free $C^*$-algebras are analyzed. In particular, the shift is shown to be uniquely ergodic with respect to the fixed-point algebra. In addition, for every $m\geq 1$, the invariant states of the shift acting on the $m$-truncated $t$-free $C^*$-algebra are shown to yield a $m+1$-d...

The concrete monotone $C^*$-algebra, that is the (unital) $C^*$-algebra generated by monotone independent algebraic random variables of Bernoulli type, is characterized abstractly in terms of generators and relations and is shown to be UHF. Moreover, its Bratteli diagram is explicitly given, which allows for the computation of its $K$-theory.

In this paper, the local iterative Lie–Schwinger block-diagonalization method, introduced and developed in our previous work for quantum chains, is extended to higher-dimensional quantum lattice systems with Hamiltonians that can be written as the sum of an unperturbed gapped operator, consisting of a sum of on-site terms, and a perturbation, consi...

On a conformal net $\mathcal{A}$, one can consider collections of unital completely positive maps on each local algebra $\mathcal{A}(I)$, subject to natural compatibility, vacuum preserving and conformal covariance conditions. We call \emph{quantum operations} on $\mathcal{A}$ the subset of extreme such maps. The usual automorphisms of $\mathcal{A}...

Discrete subfactors include a particular class of infinite index subfactors and all finite index ones. A discrete subfactor is called local when it is braided and it fulfills a commutativity condition motivated by the study of inclusion of Quantum Field Theories in the algebraic Haag–Kastler setting. In Bischoff et al. (J Funct Anal 281(1):109004,...

For a subalgebra of a generic CCR algebra, we consider the relative entropy between a general (not necessarily pure) quasifree state and a coherent excitationthereof. We give a unified formula for this entropy in terms of single-particle modular data. Further, we investigate changes of the relative entropy along subalgebras arising from an increasi...

Starting from a discrete $C^*$-dynamical system $(\mathfrak{A}, \theta, \omega_o)$, we define and study most of the main ergodic properties of the crossed product $C^*$-dynamical system $(\mathfrak{A}\rtimes_\alpha\mathbb{Z}, \Phi_{\theta, u},\om_o\circ E)$, $E:\mathfrak{A}\rtimes_\alpha\mathbb{Z}\rightarrow\ga$ being the canonical conditional expe...

Starting from a discrete C⁎-dynamical system (A,θ,ωo), we define and study most of the main ergodic properties of the crossed product C⁎-dynamical system (A⋊αZ,Φθ,u,ωo∘E), E:A⋊αZ→A being the canonical conditional expectation of A⋊αZ onto A, provided α∈Aut(A) commute with the ⁎-automorphism θ up tu a unitary u∈A. Here, Φθ,u∈Aut(A⋊αZ) can be consider...

We show that any positive energy projective unitary representation of $$\mathrm{Diff}_+(S^1)$$ Diff + ( S 1 ) extends to a strongly continuous projective unitary representation of the fractional Sobolev diffeomorphisms $$\mathcal {D}^s(S^1)$$ D s ( S 1 ) for any real $$s>3$$ s > 3 , and in particular to $$C^k$$ C k -diffeomorphisms $$\mathrm{Diff}_...

Conformal inclusions of chiral conformal field theories, or more generally inclusions of quantum field theories, are described in the von Neumann algebraic setting by nets of subfactors, possibly with infinite Jones index if one takes non-rational theories into account. With this situation in mind, we study in a purely subfactor theoretical context...

We study quantum chains whose Hamiltonians are perturbations by interactions of short range of a Hamiltonian consisting of a sum of on-site terms that do not couple the degrees of freedom located at different sites of the chain and have a strictly positive energy gap above their ground-state energy. For interactions that are form-bounded w.r.t. the...

We consider the relative entropy between coherent states relating to a quasifree (not necessarily pure) state on a generic CCR algebra, giving a unified formula for this entropy in terms of one-particle modular data. We investigate changes of the relative entropy along algebras arising from an increasing family of symplectic subspaces; here convexi...

We consider quantum chains whose Hamiltonians are perturbations by interactions of short range of a Hamiltonian that does not couple the degrees of freedom located at different sites of the chain and has a strictly positive energy gap above its ground-state energy.

We show that any solitonic representation of a conformal (diffeomorphism covariant) net on S¹ has positive energy and construct an uncountable family of mutually inequivalent solitonic representations of any conformal net, using nonsmooth diffeomorphisms. On the loop group nets, we show that these representations induce representations of the subgr...

We provide a systematic study of a non-commutative extension of the classical Anzai skew-product for the cartesian product of two copies of the unit circle to the non-commutative 2-tori. In particular, some relevant ergodic properties are proved for these quantum dynamical systems, extending the corresponding ones enjoyed by the classical Anzai ske...

We show that any positive energy projective representation of Diff(S^1) extends to a strongly continuous projective unitary representation of the fractional Sobolev diffeomorphisms D^s(S^1) with s>3, and in particular to C^k-diffeomorphisms Diff^k(S^1) with k >= 4. A similar result holds for the universal covering groups provided that the represent...

Subfactor theory provides a tool to analyze and construct extensions of Quantum Field Theories, once the latter are formulated as local nets of von Neumann algebras. We generalize some of the results of [LR95] to the case of extensions with infinite Jones index. This case naturally arises in physics, the canonical examples are given by global gauge...
