Mukunda, N and Marmo, G and Zampini, A and Chaturvedi, S and Simon, R (2005) Wigner–Weyl isomorphism for quantum mechanics on Lie groups. In: Journal of Mathematical Physics, 46 (1). 012106/1-21.
The Wigner–Weyl isomorphism for quantum mechanics on a compact simple Lie group G is developed in detail. Several features are shown to arise which have no counterparts in the familiar Cartesian case. Notable among these is the notion of a semiquantized phase space, a structure on which the Weyl symbols of operators turn out to be naturally defined and, figuratively speaking, located midway between the classical phase space T*G and the Hilbert space of square integrable functions on G. General expressions for the star product for Weyl symbols are presented and explicitly worked out for the angle-angular momentum case.
