Point processes and the position distribution of infinite boson systems

  • K. -H. Fichtner
  • W. Freudenberg


It is shown that to each locally normal state of a boson system one can associate a point process that can be interpreted as the position distribution of the state. The point process contains all information one can get by position measurements and is determined by the latter. On the other hand, to each so-called Σc-point processQ we relate a locally normal state with position distributionQ.

Key words
