Does anyone know(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); whya harmonic potential gives rise to coherent states? In other words, what is special about a quadratic potential that causes the shifted ground state to oscillate like a classical particle without dispersing so as to saturate the uncertainty principle? Any help or insight would be much appreciated. Thanks
