We construct the path integral formula in terms of a ‘‘multi‐periodic’’ coherent state as an extension of the Nielsen–Rohrlich formula for spin. We make an exact calculation of the formula and show that, when a parameter corresponding to the magnitude of spin becomes large, the leading order term of the expansion coincides with the exact result. We also give an explicit correspondence between the trace formula in the multi‐periodic coherent state and the one in the ‘‘generalized’’ coherent…

Multi-Periodic Coherent States and the WKB-Exactness II ``Non-compact Case and Classical theories Revisited''
We show that the WKB approximation gives the exact result in the trace formula of ``$CQ^N$'', which is the non-compact counterpart of $CP^N$, in terms of the ``multi-periodic'' coherent state. We
Extension of the Barut–Girardello coherent state and path integral
We extend the Barut–Girardello coherent state for the representation of SU(1,1) to the coherent state for a representation of U(N,1) and construct the measure. We also construct a path integral


A path integral formalism for quantum spins is discussed with the aid of a new coherent state. Under the study, we can see the reason why the path integral formula proposed recently by Nielsen and
More about path integrals for spin
Abstract The path integral for the SU (2) spin system is reconsidered. We show that the Nielsen-Rohrlich (NR) formula is equivalent to the spin coherent state expression so that the phase space in
Coherent states over Grassmann manifolds and the WKB exactness in path integral
U(N) coherent states over Grassmann manifold, GN,n≂U(N)/(U(n)×U(N−n)), are formulated to be able to argue the WKB exactness in the path integral representation of a character formula. The phenomena
Coherent states,Path integral,and Semiclassical approximation (マニフォ-ルド上での量子化および量子論)
Using the generalized coherent states it is shown that the path integral formulas for SU(2) and SU(1,1) (in the discrete series) are WKB exact, if it is started from the trace of e−iTĤ, where H is
Symplectic manifolds, coherent states, and semiclassical approximation
The symplectic structure and Hamiltonian dynamics for a class of Grassmannian manifolds are described here. Using the two‐dimensional sphere (S2) and disc (D2) as illustrative cases, we write their
Exactness in the Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin approximation for some homogeneous spaces
Analysis of the Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin (WKB) exactness in some homogeneous spaces is attempted. CPN as well as its noncompact counterpart DN,1 is studied. U(N+1) or U(N,1) based on the Schwinger
A path integral to quantize spin
We present a model for a classical spinning particle, characterized by spin magnitude, arbitrary but fixed, and continuously varying direction. A gauge freedom of the model reflects the choice of
Bosonic path integral for spin-12 particles
Abstract The 3D Dirac propagator is expressed as a path integral over curves of commuting two-component spinors. This is related to the path integral recently employed by Polyakov to demonstrate
The propagator for quantum mechanics on a group manifold from an infinite-dimensional analogue of the Duistermaat-Heckman integration formula
An exact expression for the quantum mechanical propagator for a particle moving on a group manifold is shown to arise from the application of an infinite-dimensional version of the
Supersymmetry and the quantum mechanics of spin
Abstract Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization is exact for a spin in a magnetic field. This well-known result is connected with the existence of a hidden supersymmetry. I discuss the supersymmetry and, in a
