Quantum Information With Continuous Variables of Atoms and Light

This booklet provides the cutting-edge of quantum details with non-stop quantum variables. the person chapters speak about effects completed in QUICOV and offered on the first 5 CVQIP meetings from 2002 2006. Many world-leading scientists engaged on non-stop variables outdoor Europe additionally give a contribution to the booklet.

The Hamiltonian, linear momentum and angular momentum of a scalar field are H= 1 2 P= − M µν = d3 x[(∂0 φ)2 + (∇φ)2 + m2 φ2 ] , d3 x∂0 φ∇φ , d3 x(xµ T 0ν − xν T 0µ ) . • The Feynman propagator of a complex field is defined by i∆F (x − y) = 0| T (φ(x)φ† (y)) |0 . E) Time ordering is defined by T φ(x)φ† (y) = θ(x0 − y0 )φ(x)φ† (y) + θ(y0 − x0 )φ† (y)φ(x) . 20. 23 present the transformations of a scalar field under discrete transformations. 1. Starting from the canonical commutators ˙ [φ(x, t), φ(y, t)] = iδ (3) (x − y) , ˙ ˙ [φ(x, t), φ(y, t)] = [φ(x, t), φ(y, t)] = 0 , derive the following commutation relations for creation and annihilation operators: [a(k), a† (q)] = δ (3) (k − q) , [a(k), a(q)] = [a† (k), a† (q)] = 0 .

This is the Casimir effect. (e) The energy per unit area, E/L2 can be regularized in a different way. Calculate integral 1 , I = d2 k 2 (k + m2 )α for Re α > 0, and then analitically continue this integral to Re α ≤ 0. Show that ∞ π2 E/L2 = − 3 n3 . 6a n=1 Regularize the sum in the previous expression using the Rieman ζ–function ∞ ζ(s) = n−s . n=1 Calculate the energy and the force per unit area. 10 Processes in the lowest order of perturbation theory • The Wick’s theorem states T (ABC . . Y Z) =: {ABC .

17. The Lagrangian density of a σ-model is given by 1 [(∂µ σ)(∂ µ σ) + (∂µ π) · (∂ µ π)] + iΨ¯ /∂ Ψ 2 m2 2 λ + g Ψ¯ (σ + iτ · πγ5 )Ψ − (σ + π 2 ) + (σ 2 + π 2 )2 , 2 4 L= Chapter 5. Classical field theory and symmetries 29 where σ is a scalar field, π is a tree-component scalar field, Ψ a doublet of spinor fields, while τ are Pauli matrices. Prove that the Lagrangian density L has the symmetry: σ(x) → σ(x), π(x) → π(x) − α × π(x), α·τ Ψ (x) , Ψ (x) → Ψ (x) + i 2 where α is an infinitesimal constant vector.
