First post ! I hope that my question will not make some long time physicists laugh. It is about geometrical quantization and the phase space in which we use : z=1/sqrt(2)(q+ip)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is simple what is this 1/sqrt(2) ? And what is it is interpretation ?

Thank you !
