Colloquium – John Klauder (UF)
Most Classical Systems Require Affine Quantization: Including gravity and most field theory
Affine quantization (AQ), a parallel procedure to canonical quantization, is focused on quantization when the coordinate space is reduced. The half-harmonic oscillator, which is limited to the positive real axis, is a clear example of what AQ can do. Several simple examples are followed with an AQ of two forms of field theories, as well as gravity, which lead to procedures that eliminate any nonrenormalizablilty.
With this talk we celebrate John’s 90th birthday!
