Quantum stochastic convolution cocyclesAug 30 2006A concept of quantum stochastic convolution cocycle is introduced and studied in two different contexts -- purely algebraic and operator space theoretic. A quantum stochastic convolution cocycle is a quantum stochastic process on a coalgebra satisfying ... More
Local freeness in frame bundle prolongations of $C^\infty$ actionsAug 23 2016May 24 2017Let $G$~be a real Lie group and let $G^\circ$ be the identity component of~$G$. Let $G$~act on a $C^\infty$ real manifold~$M$. Assume the action is $C^\infty$. Assume that the fixpoint set of any nontrivial element of~$G^\circ$ has empty interior in~$M$. ... More
Riesz transform, Gaussian bounds and the method of wave equationJul 22 2003For an abstract self-adjoint operator $L$ and a local operator $A$ we study the boundedness of the Riesz transform $AL^{-\alpha}$ on $L^p$ for some $\alpha >0$. A very simple proof of the obtained result is based on the finite speed propagation property ... More
Ratner's property for special flows over irrational rotations under functions of bounded variation. IIJul 30 2013We consider special flows over the rotation on the circle by an irrational $\alpha$ under roof functions of bounded variation. The roof functions, in the Lebesgue decomposition, are assumed to have a continuous singular part coming from a quasi-similar ... More
Study of forbidden atomic transitions on $D_2$ line using Rb nano-cell placed in external magnetic fieldNov 24 2011By experimental exploration of the so-called $\lambda $-Zeeman technique based on Rb nano-cell use we reveal for the first time a strong modification of the probability of the $^{87}$Rb, $D_2$ line $F_g=1 \rightarrow F_e=0, 1, 2, 3$ atomic transitions, ...

Short-length storage of intense optical pulses in solid by adiabatic passageJun 23 2008We propose a novel scheme of storage of intense pulses which allows a significant reduction of the storage length with respect to standard schemes. This scheme is particularly adapted to store optical information in media with fast relaxations.
