Coherent states for nonlinear harmonic oscillator and some of its properties
Abstract
A onedimensional nonlinear harmonic oscillator is studied in the context of generalized coherent states. We develop a perturbative framework to compute the eigenvalues and eigenstates for the quantum nonlinear oscillator and construct the generalized coherent states based on GazeauKlauder formalism. We analyze their statistical properties by means of Mandel parameter and second order correlation function. Our analysis reveals that the constructed coherent states exhibit superPoissonian statistics. Moreover, it is shown that the coherent states mimic the phenomena of quantum revivals and fractional revivals during their time evolution. The validity of our results has been discussed in terms of various parametric bounds imposed by our computational scheme.

Wave packets for the quantum nonlinear oscillator are considered in the generalized coherent state framework. To first order in the nonlinearity parameter the coherent state behaves very similar to its classical counterpart. The position expectation value oscillates in a simple harmonic manner. The energymomentum uncertainty relation is time independent as in a harmonic oscillator. Various features (such as the squeezed state nature) of the coherent state have been discussed.

Interaction between the molecular coherent states for a discrete variable harmonic oscillator and the coherent radiation
We used the dicrete variable threedimmensional Charlier oscillator. For a system of molecules interacting with the coherent radiation field the temporal variation of the refractive index has been established. 
Coherent states for the timedependent harmonic oscillator
Exact coherent states for the timedependent harmonic oscillator are constructed. These new coherent states have most, but not all, of the properties of the coherent states for the timeindependent oscillator. For example, these coherent states give the exact classical motion, but they are not minimum uncertainty states. 
Radial Coherent StatesFrom the Harmonic Oscillator to the Hydrogen Atom
We construct spectrum generating algebras of SO(2, 1) {approx} SU(1, 1) in arbitrary dimension for the isotropic harmonic oscillator and the SturmCoulomb problem in radial coordinates. Using these algebras, we construct the associated radial BarutGirardello coherent states for the isotropic harmonic oscillator (in arbitrary dimension). We map these states into the SturmCoulomb radial coherent states and show that they evolve in a fictitious time parameter without dispersing.
