Quantum-Classical Correspondence on Associated Vector Bundles Over Locally Symmetric Spaces
<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title>
<jats:p>For a compact Riemannian locally symmetric space $\mathcal M$ of rank 1 and an associated vector bundle $\mathbf V_{\tau }$ over the unit cosphere bundle $S^{\ast }\mathcal M$, we give a precise description of those classical (Pollicottâ€“Ruelle) resonant states on $\mathbf V_{\tau }$ that vanish under covariant derivatives in the Anosov-unstable directions of the chaotic geodesic flow on $S^{\ast }\mathcal M$. In particular, we show that they are isomorphically mapped by natural pushforwards into generalized common eigenspaces of the algebra of invariant differential operators $D(G,\sigma )$ on compatible associated vector bundles $\mathbf W_{\sigma }$ over $\mathcal M$. As a consequence of this description, we obtain an exact band structure of the Pollicottâ€“Ruelle spectrum. Further, under some mild assumptions on the representations $\tau$ and $\sigma$ defining the bundles $\mathbf V_{\tau }$ and $\mathbf W_{\sigma }$, we obtain a very explicit description of the generalized common eigenspaces. This allows us to relate classical Pollicottâ€“Ruelle resonances to quantum eigenvalues of a Laplacian in a suitable Hilbert space of sections of $\mathbf W_{\sigma }$. Our methods of proof are based on representation theory and Lie theory.</jats:p>
