Reflection symmetric Erdélyi-Kober type operators — A quasi-particle interpretation

Richard Herrmann
Published Online: 2014-09-03 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/s13540-014-0221-1


The reflection symmetric Erdélyi-Kober type fractional integral operators are used to construct fractional quasi-particle generators. The eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of these operators are given analytically. A set of fractional creation- and annihilation-operators is defined and the properties of the corresponding free Hamiltonian are investigated. Analogously to the classical approach for interacting multi-particle systems, the results are interpreted as a fractional quantum model for a description of residual interactions of pairing type.
