On representation spaces in geometric quantization
The structure of the space of wave functions in the representation given by a complete strongly admissible polarization of the phase space is investigated. The conditions that the wave functions should be covariant constant along the real part of the polarization define the Bohr-Sommerfeld set of the representation containing the supports of all wave functions. There is a natural scalar product for the wave functions defined on the Bohr-Sommerfeld set. It is shown, for a real polarization, that the resulting Hilbert space of wave functions is not trivial if and only if the Bohr-Sommerfeld set is not empty.
