Andersen, Nils Byrial;
Open Access English
  • Published: 18 Jul 2013
The purpose of this short note is to exhibit a new connection between the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle on the line and the Breitenberger Uncertainty Principle on the circle, by considering the commutator of the multiplication and difference operators on Bernstein functions
