Deformation quantization with minimal length
Pages: 59 – 100
We develop a complete theory of non-formal deformation quantization exhibiting a nonzero minimal uncertainty in position. An appropriate integral formula for the star-product is introduced together with a suitable space of functions on which the star-product is well defined. Basic properties of the star-product are proved and the extension of the star-product to a certain Hilbert space and an algebra of distributions is given. A $C^\ast$-algebra of observables and a space of states are constructed. Moreover, an operator representation in momentum space is presented. Finally, examples of position eigenvectors and states of maximal localization are given.
