Homework Statement
In Gerry's book "Introductory quantum optics", Chapter 8.5 Decoherence, Page 207, there is a calculation which doesn't give the detail derivation, who can give me the calculation from (8.26) to (8.27)?
Homework Equations
The coherent state is defined by $$\hat{a}\alpha>=\alpha\alpha>$$.
The Attempt at a Solution
Traditionally, we can calculate the differential equation of a complex function. However, it is about an equation of operator and the order of the operators is very important. I have no idea about it.
