A quantized henon map
John Erik Fornæss Brendan Weickert
We quantize the classical Henon map on $\mathbb R^2$, obtaining a unitary map on $L^2 (\mathbb R)$ whose dynamics we study, developing analogies to the classical dynamics.

Brendan Weickert
We describe a unitary operator $U(\alpha)$ on L2$(\mathbb T)$, depending on a real parameter $\alpha$, that is a quantization of a simple piecewise holomorphic dynamical system on the cylinder $\mathbf C^* \cong \mathbb T \times \mathbb R$. We give results describing the spectrum of $U(\alpha)$ in terms of the diophantine properties of $\alpha$, and use these results to compare the quantum to classical dynamics. In particular, we prove that for almost all $\alpha$, the quantum dynamics localizes, whereas the classical dynamics does not. We also give a condition implying that the quantum dynamics does not localize.
