On the distributions corresponding to bounded operators in the Weyl quantization

Abstract

Using properties of an integral transform giving directly the matrix elements of a quantum mechanical operator from the corresponding classical function, we restrict the class of distributions corresponding to bounded operators. As a consequence, we can exhibit a class of functions yielding trace-class operators, and give a bound on their trace-norm.
