# Squeezed coherent states- amplitude and phase

I'm brushing up on squeezed coherent state and have seen them defined in terms of position and momentum squeezing and in terms of amplitude and phase squeezing...is there a relation between the two? Am i missing something obvious :p ?

yes they are related....Check out Wikipedia "Squeezed coherent state" and "coherent state"...some nice illustrations...
