    added a graphics (here) illustrating how what one might call the “shape observables” on the fuzzy 2-sphere (the integrals “ S N 2(R 2k)\int_{S^2_N} (R^{2k})” for any choice of fixing the ordering ambiguity of the integrand) are encoded by chord diagrams, and are in fact 𝔰𝔩(2)\mathfrak{sl}(2)-weight system Vassiliev invariants.

    To give this a little bit of a home, I added a minimum of text around that, and in order to give that text a bit of a home I added some further text with basics on the definition of the fuzzy 2-sphere.

    replaced the previous graphics (showing the chord diagrams coresponding to the various shape observables on the fuzzy 2-sphere) by a slightly improved version (here). Also adjusted the text slightly, but there remains much room for improvement.

    What’s the NN-dependence of the right normalization of the integral over the unit fuzzy 2-sphere by tracing?

    Is it 1N 21\tfrac{1}{\sqrt{N^2 -1}} or just 1N\tfrac{1}{N}?

    I suppose it must be the former, but some authors use the latter.

    Of course it depends on what one wants to do.

    I’d be inclined to argue with the cross product formula for the volume element of the ordinary 2-sphere. Identifying that cross product differential with the commutator of the fuzzy functions gives the 1N 21\tfrac{1}{\sqrt{N^2 -1}}-factor, but now the question is why not rescale that identification.

    I was hoping the answer might be in

    but if it is, I haven’t found it yet.

    Is something odd going on with jj and NN in the description of the fuzzy 2-sphere and then later in the definition of ρ j\rho_j?

    • CommentTimeJan 17th 2020

    The first occurence of ρ j\rho_j was a typo.

    I have now fixed it, moved the discussion of normalizations to its own subsection Conventions and Normalizations and expanded a fair bit.

    But maybe your comment already refers to these edits? Most equations are numbered now, please let me know which one you are looking at.

    Post the fix, you still had a mistaken jj, but I’ve fixed that now and another typo.
