Generalized uncertainty relations and coherent and squeezed states

Not Accessible

Abstract

Characteristic uncertainty relations and their related squeezed states are briefly reviewed and compared in accordance with the generalizations of three equivalent definitions of canonical coherent states. The standard SU(1, 1) coherent states are shown to be the unique states that minimize the Schrödinger uncertainty relation for every pair of the three generators and the Robertson relation for the three generators. The characteristic uncertainty inequalities are naturally extended to the case of several states. It is shown that these inequalities can be written in the equivalent complementary form.
