An involution and dynamics for theq-deformed quantum top

  • A. Yu. Alekseev
  • L. D. Faddeev


An involution on the phase space of the q-deformed quantum top is constructed which singles out a q-analog of its compact form, and a dynamics compatible with this involution is proposed which imitates the motion of the classical symmetric top. Bibliography:15 titles.
