We explore some explicit representations of a certain stable deformed algebra of quantum mechanics, considered by R Vilela Mendes, having a fundamental length scale. The relation of the irreducible representations of the deformed algebra to those of the (limiting) Heisenberg algebra is discussed, and we construct the generalized harmonic oscillator Hamiltonian in this framework. To obtain local currents for this algebra, we extend the usual nonrelativistic local current algebra of vector fields and the corresponding group of diffeomorphisms, modelling the quantum configuration space as a commutative spatial manifold with one additional dimension.
