On the uniqueness of Planck's constant
It is shown that, for the case of two different particles associated with two different Planck constants, an appropriate generalized center-of-mass transformation allows one to retain the relevant constants of the motion. Therefore, some of the problems arising from the (postulated or experimentally determined) existence of several quantization constants appear to be avoidable.
