## Homework Statement

Given the transformation

[tex] Q = p+iaq, P = \frac{p-iaq}{2ia} [/tex]

## Homework Equations

find the generating function

## The Attempt at a Solution

As far as I know, one needs to find two independent variables and try to solve. I couldn't find such to variables.

I've tried expressing it in terms of F(Q,P), and F(q,p) but always had one more term in the equation that prevented me from getting to [tex] H(q,p) = -H(Q,P) + \frac{\partial F}{\partial t} [/tex]

I'm pretty clueless as to what is needed here. Can someone help me get started?

Thanks.
