## Non-Lie Top tunneling and Quantum bilocalization in Planar Penning Trap

We describe how a top-like quantum Hamiltonian over a non-Lie algebra appears in the model of the planar Penning trap under breaking its axial symmetry (inclination of the magnetic field) and turning parameters (electric voltage, magnetic field strength and inclination angle) at double resonance. For eigenvalues of the quantum non-Lie top, under a specific variation of the voltage on the trap electrode, there exists the avoided crossing effect and corresponding effect of bilocalization of quantum states on pairs of closed trajectories belonging to common energy levels. This quantum tunneling happens on the symplectic leaves of the symmetry algebra, and hence it generates the tunneling of quantum states of the electron between 3D-tori in the whole 6D-phase space. We present a geometric formula for the leading term of asymptotics of the tunnel energy-splitting interms of symplectic area of membranes bounded by invariantly defined instantones.

We present a general methodology for evaluating structure factors defining the orientation dependence of tunneling ionization rates of molecules, which is a key process in strong-field physics. The method is implemented at the Hartree-Fock level of electronic structure theory and is based on an integralequation approach to the weak-field asymptotic theory of tunneling ionization, which expresses the structure factor in terms of an integral involving the ionizing orbital and a known analytical function. The evaluation of the required integrals is done by three-dimensional quadrature which allows calculations using conventional quantum chemistry software packages. This extends the applications of the weak-field asymptotic theory to polyatomic molecules of almost arbitrary size. The method is tested by comparison with previous results and illustrated by calculating structure factors for the two degenerate highest occupied molecular orbitals (HOMOs) of benzene and for the HOMO and HOMO-1 of naphthalene

For the Dirac 2D-operator in a constant magnetic field with perturbing electric potential, we derive Hamiltonians describing the quantum quasiparticles (Larmor vortices) at Landau levels. The discrete spectrum of this Hall-effect quantum Hamiltonian can be computed to all orders of the semiclassical approximation by a deformed Planck-type quantization condition on the 2D-plane; the standard magnetic (symplectic) form on the plane is corrected by an “electric curvature” determined via derivatives of the electric field. The electric curvature does not depend on the magnitude of the electric field and vanishes for homogeneous fields (i.e., for the canonical Hall effect). This curvature can be treated as an effective magnetic charge of the inhomogeneous Hall 2D-nanosystem.

A model for organizing cargo transportation between two node stations connected by a railway line which contains a certain number of intermediate stations is considered. The movement of cargo is in one direction. Such a situation may occur, for example, if one of the node stations is located in a region which produce raw material for manufacturing industry located in another region, and there is another node station. The organization of freight traﬃc is performed by means of a number of technologies. These technologies determine the rules for taking on cargo at the initial node station, the rules of interaction between neighboring stations, as well as the rule of distribution of cargo to the ﬁnal node stations. The process of cargo transportation is followed by the set rule of control. For such a model, one must determine possible modes of cargo transportation and describe their properties. This model is described by a ﬁnite-dimensional system of diﬀerential equations with nonlocal linear restrictions. The class of the solution satisfying nonlocal linear restrictions is extremely narrow. It results in the need for the “correct” extension of solutions of a system of diﬀerential equations to a class of quasi-solutions having the distinctive feature of gaps in a countable number of points. It was possible numerically using the Runge–Kutta method of the fourth order to build these quasi-solutions and determine their rate of growth. Let us note that in the technical plan the main complexity consisted in obtaining quasi-solutions satisfying the nonlocal linear restrictions. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of quasi-solutions and, in particular, sizes of gaps (jumps) of solutions on a number of parameters of the model characterizing a rule of control, technologies for transportation of cargo and intensity of giving of cargo on a node station.

Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k- rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the question whether or not the field extensions k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G are purely transcendental. We show that the answer is the same for k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G, and reduce the problem to the case where G is simple. For simple groups we show that the answer is positive if G is split of type A_n or C_n, and negative for groups of other types, except possibly G_2. A key ingredient in the proof of the negative result is a recent formula for the unramified Brauer group of a homogeneous space with connected stabilizers. As a byproduct of our investigation we give an affirmative answer to a question of Grothendieck about the existence of a rational section of the categorical quotient morphism for the conjugating action of G on itself.

Let G be a connected semisimple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. In 1965 Steinberg proved that if G is simply connected, then in G there exists a closed irreducible cross-section of the set of closures of regular conjugacy classes. We prove that in arbitrary G such a cross-section exists if and only if the universal covering isogeny Ĝ → G is bijective; this answers Grothendieck's question cited in the epigraph. In particular, for char k = 0, the converse to Steinberg's theorem holds. The existence of a cross-section in G implies, at least for char k = 0, that the algebra k[G]G of class functions on G is generated by rk G elements. We describe, for arbitrary G, a minimal generating set of k[G]G and that of the representation ring of G and answer two Grothendieck's questions on constructing generating sets of k[G]G. We prove the existence of a rational (i.e., local) section of the quotient morphism for arbitrary G and the existence of a rational cross-section in G (for char k = 0, this has been proved earlier); this answers the other question cited in the epigraph. We also prove that the existence of a rational section is equivalent to the existence of a rational W-equivariant map T- - - >G/T where T is a maximal torus of G and W the Weyl group.
