Subalgebras with converging star products in deformation quantization: An algebraic construction for \(\mathbb{C} P^n\). (English) Zbl 0923.58024

In an earlier article [Lett. Math. Phys. 36, No. 4, 357-371 (1996; Zbl 0849.58035)], the authors gave a closed formula for a star product of the Wick type complex projective space. Here they use this formula to construct a subalgebra \({\mathcal U}\) of the formal algebra consisting of converging power series of the formal parameter. When substituting this parameter by a real number \(\alpha\), the quotient of \({\mathcal U}\) by the kernel of the substitution homomorphism turns out to be infinite dimensional, except for the case \(\alpha= {1\over n}\), \(n\) some positive integer, where it turns out to be finite dimensional and can be identified with an associative algebra of quantum observables of the isotropic harmonic oscillator with \(n + 1\) degrees of freedom. This procedure is tested on other phase spaces like \(\mathbb{C}^{n+l}\), the \(2n\)-torus or the Poincaré disk.
