Title: Quantisation of free associative dynamical systems

Bi-quantisation of stationary KdV hierarchy and Novikov's equations and non-deformation quantisation of the Volterra sub-hierarchy.

Abstract:
Traditional quantisation theories start with classical Hamiltonian systems with variables taking values in commutative algebras and then study their non-commutative deformations, such that the commutators of observables tend to the corresponding Poisson brackets as the (Planck) constant of deformation goes to zero. I am proposing to depart from dynamical systems defined on a free associative algebra [math]\displaystyle{ \mathfrak{A} }[/math]. In this approach the quantisation problem is reduced to description of two-sided ideals [math]\displaystyle{ \mathfrak{J}\subset\mathfrak{A} }[/math] satisfying two conditions: the ideals have to be invariant with respect to the dynamics of the system and to define a complete set of commutation relations in the quotient algebras [math]\displaystyle{ \mathfrak{A}_\mathfrak{J}=\mathfrak{A}\diagup\mathfrak{J} }[/math].

To illustrate this approach I'll consider the quantisation problem for [math]\displaystyle{ N }[/math]-th Novikov equations and the corresponding finite KdV hierarchy. I will show that stationary KdV equations and Novikov's equations admit two compatible quantisations, i.e. two distinct commutation relations between the variables, such that a linear combination of the corresponding commutators i s also a valid quantisation rule leading to the Heisenberg form of quantum equations. The picture is very similar to the bi-Hamiltonian structure in the case of classical integrable equations.

I'll discuss quantisation of the Bogoyavlensky family of integrable [math]\displaystyle{ N }[/math]--chains:

[math]\displaystyle{ \frac{du_n}{dt}=\sum_{k=1}^N (u_{n+k}u_n-u_n u_{n-k}),\qquad n\in\mathbb{Z},\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad(1) }[/math]

quantisation of their symmetries and modifications. In particular, I will show t hat odd degree symmetries of the Volterra chain ([math]\displaystyle{ N=1 }[/math] in (1)) admit two quantisations, one of them corresponds to known quantisation of the Volterra chain, and another one is new and not deformational.
