On The Information-Theoretical Entropy for Some Quantum Oscillators

Open access


The information-theoretical entropy, also called the “classical” entropy, was introduced by Wehrl in terms of the Glauber coherent states (CSs) | z > , i.e. the CSs corresponding to the one-dimensional harmonic oscillator (HO-1D). In the present paper, we have focused our attention on the examination of the information-theoretical entropy, i.e. the Wehrl entropy, for both the pure and the mixed (thermal) states of some quantum oscillators.
