After this lecture you will be able to:
- Do cool things
- Describe the main properties of the Wigner function
- Describe the relation between the Wigner function and the probability distribution of a quantum state
In the last lecture we discussed some properties of quantum fluctuations of the ground state of the harmonic oscillator, and took a look at an interesting state of the QHO known as the coherent state.
In the last lecture we discussed some properties of quantum fluctuations of the ground state of the harmonic oscillator, and took a look at an interesting state of the quantum harmonic oscillator known as the coherent state.
We will now inspect the coherent state in more detail, but first we will study a different way of representing the wavefunction called the Wigner quasiprobability distribution, or for short, the Wigner function.
