The Bergman Kernel in Quantum Mechanics

  • Charles L. Fefferman
Part of the Trends in Mathematics book series (TM)

Abstract

In this article we describe a problem in quantum mechanics, and explain how the elementary properties of the Bergman kernel played a role in its history. We begin by describing the problem and stating the main results. Then we discuss the relevance of the Bergman kernel. (In the sharpest results known at present, the Bergman kernel is out of the picture; but I think the idea is pretty, and I hope it will return.)
