Generalized coherent states and some of their applications
The review is devoted to an analysis of definite overcomplete non-orthogonal state systems that are connected with irreducible representations of Lie groups–the so called systems of generalized coherent states. These systems, which the author is the first to propose, are generalizations of Glauber's coherentstate system and arise in natural fashion in physical problems that have dynamic symmetry. They permit a considerable simplification of the solution of the quantum problem by reducing it to a simpler ``classical'' problem. The review deals with the properties of generalized-coherent-state systems connected with the simplest Lie groups.
