Classical propagators of quadratic quantum systems

  • O. V. Man'ko


A new quantum mechanical formalism based on the probability representation of states is applied to ions in traps and stimulated Raman scattering. Explicit expressions are found for the classical propagators of a free particle, a harmonic oscillator, an ion in the Paul trap, an ion in the Penning trap, and stimulated Raman scattering.
