Completely positive maps on Coxeter groups, deformed commutation relations, and operator spaces. (English) Zbl 0819.20043
Let \((q_{ij})\) be a self-adjoint \(n \times n\) complex matrix, with \(| q_{ij}| \leq 1\) for all \(i\), \(j\). The purpose of this paper is to prove the existence of a Fock representation of the \(q\)-deformed commutation relations. This amounts to proving the existence of a Hilbert space \(H\), with a distinguished unit vector \(\Omega\) and operators \((d_ i)^ n_{i = 1}\) on \(H\) fulfilling: \(d_ i \Omega = 0\) for all \(i\), \(d_ i d_ j^* - q_{ij} d^*_ j d_ i = \delta_{ij} 1\) for all \(i\), \(j\). The cases of \(q_{ij} \equiv \pm \delta_{ij}\) correspond to the usual CCR and CAR and are well known. When \(q_{ij} = q \delta_{ij}\) (with \(| q| \leq 1\)) one gets a model which has been studied recently by Fivel, Greenberg, Zagier, and the authors. In particular, they have shown that the existence of a Fock representation follows from the fact that the function \(\pi \to q^{i(\pi)}\), where \(i(\pi)\) is the inversion number of a permutation \(\pi\), is positive definite on the symmetric group.
In this paper, they extend this analysis by considering some self-adjoint operators \(T_ i\), of norm \(\leq 1\), satisfying the braid relations, and proving that the quasi-multiplicative extension of \(\varphi(\pi_ i) = T_ i\) on \(S_ n\) is completely positive. (Here \(S_ n\) is the symmetric group on \(n\) objects and the \(\pi_ i\) are its Coxeter generators). In fact they prove a more general version, valid for more general Coxeter groups. Finally, they give an operator space characterization of the span of the operators \((d_ i)^ n_{i = 1}\).
