Quantum Grassmannians?

+ 6 like - 0 dislike
42 views

In noncommutative algebraic geometry a commonly studied family of objects are quantum projective spaces. Theses are certain deformations of the homogeneous coordinate ring of $\mathbb{CP}^n$. For example, see this mathoverflow post. The obvious question I would like to ask is whether or not people consider a Grassmannian generalisation of such objects, and if so, what are some well-known references.

For a notion of a noncommutative Grassmannian, see the MO question mathoverflow.net/questions/168993/…

These discussions are all valid approaches to quantum grassmannians. But more similar to the quantum projective space is the notion of quantum flag varieties--I.e. Those coming from quantum groups--which I worked out the gluing for the affine patches in my thesis...

apparently, quantum grassmannians come in many variations --- this may be what you are looking for:

Graded quantum cluster algebras and an application to quantum Grassmannians, Grabowksi & Launois, 2010.

Among those who study quantized coordinate rings, it is widely acknowledged that Grassmannians have a special place. The intricate geometric structures associated to Grassmannians, due in part to their Lie-theoretic origins, give a rich structure of their quantized coordinate rings, the quantum Grassmannians.

Thanks for the links Carlo! However, the second is not a noncommutative space, but something coming from quantum cohomology/string theory. The others are quantized coordinate algebras, not quantized homogeneous coordinate rings, as in the linked question.

thanks for correcting me, a second attempt follows.

There is a deformation quantization approach to the quantization of the Grassmannians taking their Kähler symplectic form as the starting point. You can find this in the preprint by Schirmer arXiv:q-alg/9709021 from the nineties. He wrote a PhD on that. There are many earlier works on the quantization of $\mathbb{CP}^n$ in the same spirit, starting perhaps with works of Moreno and collaborators in the early eighties. You find many references in Schirmer's preprint.

However, this is not directly a $C^*$-algebraic approach, if you are interested in things like that. Nevertheless, the (a priori formal) star product is algebraic on many nice functions (the representative functions).
