**An Introduction to Microlocal Analysis**

by Richard B. Melrose, Gunther Uhlmann

**Publisher**: MIT 2008**Number of pages**: 182

**Description**:

One of the origins of scattering theory is the study of quantum mechanical systems, generally involving potentials. The scattering theory for perturbations of the flat Laplacian is discussed with the initial approach being via the solution of the Cauchy problem for the corresponding perturbed wave equation.

We discuss a quantum counterpart of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from 'hard' symplectic geometry. They can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables and their joint measurements in operational quantum mechanics.

This paper is an introduction to work motivated by the question 'can multipartite entanglement be detected by homological algebra?' We introduce cochain complexes associated to multipartite density states whose cohomology detects factorizability.
