Homework Help: Quantum Mechanics, Glauber Coherent States of QHO, and superpositions of states

  1. Jan 31, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to investigate Glauber Coherent States and I have no clue where to begin.

    I need to define a superposition of two coherent states with amplitudes 2.6 and -2.6 in a potential with V0=0.65

    2. Relevant equations

    Schrodinger Eqn.
    E ψ(x) = -1/2 d^2/dx^2 ψ(x) + V0 x^2/2 ψ(x)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    No attempt so far =(

    This is a coursework question so I'd be grateful if someone will point me in the right direction rater than give me the answer =)
