Analysis, functional analysis
My research interests include operator theory, C*-algebras, and quantum mechanics from the viewpoint of deformations of C*-algebras. The operators on which I focus are usually of Toeplitz-type and act on the square-integrable holomorphic functions on phase-space. I am interested in C*-algebras of these operators with various interesting "symbols" and the relation of such algebras to algebras of pseudo-differential operators which have been studied classically.
In the past several years, I have become interested in the structure of the Berezin symbol calculus of general operators on Bergman reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. This calculus serves as a model for "quantization" and has been the object of considerable attention since it was introduced by Berezin in the 1970's.
