Respectfully dedicate to Professor M. Sato on the occasion of his 70th birthday Abstract. Let X be a compact manifold with boundary. Suppose that the boundary is fibred, φ: ∂X − → Y, and let x ∈ C ∞ (X) be a boundary defining function. This data fixes the space of ‘fibred cusp ’ vector fields, consisting of those vector fields V on X satisfying V x = O(x 2) and which are tangent to the fibres of φ; it is a Lie algebra and C ∞ (X) module. This Lie algebra is quantized to the ‘small calculus ’ of pseudodifferential operators Ψ ∗ Φ (X). Mapping properties including boundedness, regularity, Fredholm condition and symbolic maps are discussed for this calculus. The spectrum of the Laplacian of an ‘exact fibred cusp ’ metric is analyzed as is the wavefront set associated to the calculus.

We exhibit large classes of examples of noncommutative finitedimensional manifolds which are (nonformal) deformations of classical manifolds. The main result of this paper is a complete description of noncommutative threedimensional spherical manifolds, a noncommutative version of the sphere S 3 defined by basic Ktheoretic equations. We find a 3parameter family of deformations of the standard 3sphere S 3 and a corresponding 3parameter deformation of the 4dimensional Euclidean space R 4. For generic values of the deformation parameters we show that the obtained algebras of polynomials on the deformed R 4 u are isomorphic to the algebras introduced by Sklyanin in connection with the YangBaxter equation. Special values of the deformation parameters do not give rise to Sklyanin algebras and we extract a subclass, the θdeformations, which we generalize in any dimension and various contexts, and study in some details.

Mathematical analysis of the Anderson localization has been facilitated by the use of suitable fractional moments of the Green function. Related methods permit now a readily accessible derivation of a number of physical manifestations of localization, in regimes of strong disorder, extreme energies, or weak disorder away from the unperturbed spectrum. The present work establishes on this basis exponential decay for the modulus of the two–point function, at all temperatures as well as in the ground state, for a Fermi gas within the one–particle approximation. Different implications, in particular for the Integral Quantum Hall Effect, are reviewed.

It has been discussed earlier that ( weak quasi) quantum groups allow for conventional interpretation as internal symmetries in local quantum theory. From general arguments and explicit examples their consistency with (braid) statistics and locality was established. This work addresses to the reconstruction of quantum symmetries and algebras of field operators. For every algebra A of observables satisfying certain standard assumptions, an appropriate quantum symmetry is found. Field operators are obtained which act on a positive definite Hilbert space of states and transform covariantly under the quantum symmetry. As a substitute for Bose/Fermi (anti) commutation relations, these fields are demonstrated to obey local braid relation.

We study the relative index of two orthogonal infinite dimensional projections which, in the finite dimensional case, is the difference in their dimensions. We relate the relative index to the Fredholm index of appropriate operators, discuss its basic properties, and obtain various formulas for it. We apply the relative index to counting the change in the number of electrons below the Fermi energy of certain quantum systems and interpret it as the charge deficiency. We study the relation of the charge deficiency with the notion of adiabatic charge transport that arises from the consideration of the adiabatic curvature. It is shown that, under a certain covariance, (homogeneity), condition the two are related. The relative index is related to Bellissard's theory of the Integer Hall effect. For Landau Hamiltonians the relative index is computed explicitly for all Landau levels.

We consider the problem of representing in Hilbert space commutation relations of the form aia ∗ j = δij1 + ∑ kℓ T kℓ ij a ∗ ℓ ak, where the T kℓ ij are essentially arbitrary scalar coefficients. Examples comprise the qcanonical commutation relations introduced by Greenberg, Bozejko, and Speicher, and the twisted canonical (anti)commutation relations studied by Pusz and Woronowicz, as well as the quantum group SνU(2). Using these relations, any polynomial in the generators ai and their adjoints can uniquely be written in “Wick ordered form ” in which all starred generators are to the left of all unstarred ones. In this general framework we define the Fock representation, as well as coherent representations. We develop criteria for the natural scalar product in the associated representation spaces to be positive definite, and for the relations to have representations by bounded operators in a Hilbert space. We characterize the relations between the generators ai (not involving a ∗ i) which are compatible with the basic relations. The relations may also be interpreted as defining a noncommutative differential calculus. For generic coefficients T kℓ ij, however, all differential forms of degree 2 and higher vanish. We exhibit conditions for this not to be the case, and relate them to the ideal structure of the Wick algebra, and conditions of positivity. We show that the differential calculus is compatible with the involution iff the coefficients T define a representation of the braid group. This condition is also shown to imply improved bounds for the positivity of the Fock representation. Finally, we study the KMS states of the group of gauge transformations defined by aj ↦ → exp(it)aj.
