Exponential formulas and Lie algebra type star products. (English) Zbl 1248.81092
Summary: Given formal differential operators \(F_i\) on polynomial algebra in several variables \(x_1,\ldots,x_n\), we discuss finding expressions \(K_l\) determined by the equation \(\exp(\sum_i x_i F_i)(\exp(\sum_j q_j x_j)) = \exp(\sum_l K_l x_l)\) and their applications. The expressions for \(K_l\) are related to the coproducts for deformed momenta for the noncommutative space-times of Lie algebra type and also appear in the computations with a class of star products. We find combinatorial recursions and derive formal differential equations for finding \(K_l\). We elaborate an example for a Lie algebra \(su(2)\), related to a quantum gravity application from the literature.
