${\mathbb Z}_2\times {\mathbb Z}_2$-graded mechanics: the quantization

N. Aizawa Aizawa, Z. Kuznetsova Kuznetsova, F. Toppan Toppan


In the previous paper arXiv:2003.06470 we introduced the notion of ${\mathbb Z}_2\times{\mathbb Z}_2$-graded classical mechanics and presented a general framework to construct, in the Lagrangian setting, the worldline sigma models invariant under a ${\mathbb Z}_2\times{\mathbb Z}_2$-graded superalgebra. In this work we discuss at first the classical Hamiltonian formulation of some of these models and later present their canonical quantization. \par As the simplest application of the construction we recover the ${\mathbb Z}_2\times{\mathbb Z}_2$-graded quantum Hamiltonian introduced by Bruce and Duplij in arXiv:1904.06975. We prove that this is the first example of a large class of ${\mathbb Z}_2\times{\mathbb Z}_2$-graded quantum models. We derive in particular interacting multiparticle  quantum Hamiltonians given by Hermitian, matrix, differential operators. The interacting terms appear as non-diagonal entries in the matrices. \par The construction of the Noether charges, both classical and quantum, is presented. A comprehensive discussion of the different ${\mathbb Z}_2\times{\mathbb Z}_2$-graded symmetries possessed by the quantum Hamiltonians is given.
