We find a natural representation of the coordinate algebra of {kappa}-Minkowski as linear operators on an Hilbert space (a major problem in the construction of a physical theory), study its 'spectral properties', and discuss how to obtain a Dirac operator for this space. We describe two Dirac operators. The first is associated with a spectral Author: D'andrea, Francesco. Connes on Spectral Geometry of the Standard Model, IV Yep, this is even more true now that the spectral dimension from the finite Dirac operator doesnt matter. In Connes book, the Fredholm module is usually extracted by removing any metric information from the Dirac operator. So our refined notion of a spectral triple (H, D, A) (H,D,A) involves a graded Hilbert space H H, an operator D D of odd-degree and a representation on H H of the C * C^*-algebra A A.. While it can be made plausible along the above lines why this notion of a spectral triple is useful, it is still amazing to me how very useful it is indeed.

A Dirac Operator for Extrinsic Shape Analysis Spectral geometry processing encodes shape in terms of the eigen- Dirac operator is highly sensitive to features like surface texture and sharp creases, nicely complementing existing operators that emphasize global, intrinsic features.

In mathematics, spectral theory is an inclusive term for theories extending the eigenvector and eigenvalue theory of a single square matrix to a much broader theory of the structure of operators in a variety of mathematical spaces.
