On algebraic curves for commuting elements in q-Heisenberg algebras



In the present article we continue investigating the algebraic dependence of commuting elements in q-deformed Heisenberg algebras. We provide a simple proof that the 0-chain subalgebra is a maximal commutative subalgebra when q is of free type and that it coincides with the centralizer (commutant) of any one of its elements di erent from the scalar multiples of the unity. We review the Burchnall-Chaundy-type construction for proving algebraic dependence and obtaining corresponding algebraic curves for commuting elements in the q-deformed Heisenberg algebra by computing a certain determinant with entries depending on two commuting variables and one of the generators. The coe cients in front of the powers of the generator in the expansion of the determinant are polynomials in the two variables de ning some algebraic curves and annihilating the two commuting elements. We show that for the elements from the 0-chain subalgebra exactly one algebraic curve arises in the expansion of the determinant. Finally, we present several examples of computation of such algebraic curves and also make some observations on the properties of these curves.
