  PlanetMath: unitary
A unitary transformation is a surjective linear transformation
On the other hand, the representing matrix of a unitary transformation relative to an orthonormal basis is, in fact, a unitary matrix.
Unitary spaces, transformations, and matrices are of fundamental importance in quantum mechanics.

 A Critique of Relativity and Localization
The transformation equations named for Lorentz are a set of rules to transform observations made relative to one observer into those made relative to another observer.
The Lorentz transformations are called point transformations; and it is their point-for-point character which requires the point-by-point definition of the free fields, and leads to their "local" character, their being defined with reference to space and time.
In field theory, for example, Haag's theorems [5] and related results establish that there is no acceptable correspondence (unitary transformation) between free-particle fields and the interacting-particle fields when we include interaction in the time-evolution of the system.

 Unitary state
A unitary state is a state or country that is governed constitutionally as one single unit, with one constitutionally created legislature.
The United Kingdom is a particularly striking example of a unitary state with a series of parliament-created devolved assemblies, for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, all of which were created in between 1998 and 1999.
The high proportion of the world's countries which are unitary states results in large part from the fact that most are insufficiently large enough to produce the complexity necessary to demand the devolution of power on distinct internal territories.

 Unitary transform methods of identifying defects in imaging devices - US Patent 5325198   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The squared magnitudes of the transform values of the selected regions are summed and the resulting sum is normalized for mask shape and flood image intensity to determine and quantify the presence of specific artifacts.
A decision unit compares the normalized transformation sum to a predetermined maximum threshold, and optionally activates a display means, which indicates if the threshold has been exceeded indicating that the imaging means has a significant artifact of the type being tested and has failed the test.
A test mask 20 selects regions of the transform field to be tested according to a test mask M and passes the selected regions of transform field T(A) to a deviation calculation means 22 which determines a sum of transformation sum S(A,M) within the selected regions.

 Unitary transform methods of identifying defects in imaging devices - Patent 5325198
A unitary transform unit receives the normalized intensity values and determines a D-dimensional transform field comprised of transform values T(A).sub.i,j each being an i,jth component of the unitary transform.
In the case of the Fourier transform, the component T(A).sub.i,j is the (i,j)th frequency component of the transform.
The horizontal and vertical dimensions of the transform fields being the f.sub.x and f.sub.y frequency axes pertain to the vertical x and horizontal y directions of the flood images, respectively.

 Bogoliubov transformation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In theoretical physics, the Bogoliubov transformation is a unitary transformation from a unitary representation of some canonical commutation relation algebra or canonical anticommutation relation algebra into another unitary representation, induced by an isomorphism of the CCR/CAR algebra.
and they can be viewed as the Bogoliubov transformations of one another using the operator-state correspondence.
In physics, the Bogoliubov transformation is important for understanding of the Unruh effect and Hawking radiation, among many other things.

 NRaD TD2733 text
In general, the linear transformation on the frequency components may be any Green's function transformation from every component in the input segment to every component in the output segment, and it may be as complicated as the transformation one might use in a time domain approach.
If we admit arbitrary elementary transformations as building blocks, we face the problem that individual elements of the data sequence may face degenerate or nearly degenerate transformations, so that some of the input data samples may be represented only weakly or not at all in the output.
One complication of discrete-time transformational architectures (elementary transformation architectures, as well as frequency analysis/synthesis techniques) is that they tend to produce critically sampled representations of their output signals; hence, accurately smoothing the output samples to a continuous-time signal may not be simple.

 Unitary matrix : Unitary transformation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
A unitary matrix is a square matrix U whose entries are complex numbers and whose inverse is equal to its conjugate transpose U*.
A unitary matrix in which all entries are real is the same thing as an orthogonal matrix.
All unitary matrices are normal, and the spectral theorem therefore applies to them.

A unitary transformation is an isomorphism (but not an antiisomorphism; that corresponds to an antiunitary transformation) between two Hilbert spaces or an automorphism of a single Hilbert space.
In mathematics, an isomorphism (in Greek isos = equal and morphe = shape) is a kind of mapping between objects, devised by Eilhard Mitscherlich.
In functional analysis, a unitary operator is a bounded linear operator U on a Hilbert space satisfying U*U=UU*=I where I is the identity operator.

In order to enhance the development in such type of studies we use a procedure that starts from the existence of a given phase (proved with another method, see for example[1]) in a given domain of the parameter space connected to a model Hamiltonian.
The procedure is based on the well known fact that an arbitrary unitary transformation does not change the eigenvalues spectrum, so if a state is a ground-state of a given Hamiltonian (H), the transformed state will be the ground-state of the system described by the transformed Hamiltonian (H').
The unitary transformations used by us[1] connect a superconducting state to a ferromagnetic state, a spin-density wavw state to a charge-density wave state, a phase separation in charge to a phase separation in spin.

Unitary similarity transformations furnish a powerful vehicle for generating infinite generic classes of signal analysis and processing tools based on concepts different from time, frequency, and scale.
Implementation of these new tools involves simply preprocessing the signal by a unitary transformation, performing standard processing techniques on the transformed signal, and then (in some cases) transforming the resulting output.
These applications illustrate the utility of the unitary equivalence concept for uniting seemingly disparate approaches proposed in the literature.

 The Foldy-Wouthuysen Transformation
Because of the nature of the FW transformation, each application of the unitary transform results in a residual odd operator which is higher order by one in the fine structure constant each time.
The utility of the Foldy-Wouthuysen transformation lies in the fact that the even operator which remains may be utilized as an approximate Hamiltonian which should take account for the preponderance of the effects of relativity.
Because of the effort required to develop the proper unitary transformation and subsequently apply it to the total electronic wavefunction, it is not practical to go much beyond separating the odd operator to a greater order than

The operators which result from such a transformation can be very complicated, but provide solutions which fit more comfortably into traditional concepts of electronic solutions.
The objective of the Foldy-Wouthoysen transformation is to apply a unitary transform to the relativistic, four-component wave equation in order to decouple the large and small components by eradicating the odd portions of the Hamiltonian to some order in an expansion parameter which will go to zero in the non-relativistic limit.

We present a numerical technique, "Unitary Integration," that exactly preserves these invariants to all orders in the time step.
This method, which evolves the density matrix via unitary transformations, is the quantum mechanical analog of symplectic integrators commonly used in classical mechanics.
Although the evolution is approximate (as in any numerical method), the structure of Liouville's equation is preserved exactly since the time advance map is constructed so as to yield a unitary transformation.

In the present contribution a unitary transformation is introduced, which gives rise to a simpler hamiltonian and the matrix elements of its different component terms with respect to the U_b \times U_s(3) basis states are easily calculated.
At the same time this unitary transformation in the boson approximation limit yields new insights to the shell model interpretation of the quantum rotor hamiltonian.

From known phase diagram regions of different model Hamiltonians describing strongly correlated systems we deduced new domains of the ground state phase diagram of the same models by a unitary transformation.
Different types of extended Hubbard Hamiltonians were used for the starting point and the existence of new stable spin-density waves, charge-density waves, ferromagnetic states and a paramagnetic insulator is demonstrated.
The ground state phase diagrams of several strongly correlated systems modelled by extended Hubbard-like Hamiltonians are analysed using unitary transformations.
