An integral transform related to quantization

Published

Journal Article

We study in some detail the correspondence between a function f on phase space and the matrix elements (Qf)(a, b) of its quantized Q f between the coherent states |a< and |b<. It is an integral transform: Qf(a, b) = ∫{a, b |v} f(v) dv which resembles in many ways the integral transform of Bargmann. We obtain the matrix elements of Q f between harmonic oscillator states as the Fourier coefficients of f with respect to an explicit orthonormal system. © 1980 American Institute of Physics.
