Group theoretical methods in particle physics, the idea of the spectrum
generating group, relativistic spectrum generating group and relativistic
collective models. Also research on the quantum geometric phase and foundations
and applications in molecule physics (1989-93). Work on the rigged Hilbert
space formulation of quantum mechanics (1964-66), with applications to
decay and Golden Rule, time evolution semigroup (1975-81),
irreversible quantum theory (1993-2001).
