Does anyone know the mathematical definition of the microcanonical partition function?

I've seen

[tex]\Omega = {E_0\over{N!h^{3n}}}\int d^{3N}q d^{3N}p \delta(H - E)[/tex]

where H=H(p,q) is the Hamiltonian. This looks like a useful definition.

Only thing is I don't know what [tex]E_0[/tex] is.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
