* Idea: One can start with a ψcoh in \(\cal H\)kin and apply a group averaging procedure to implement the Dirac prescription, or construct a coherent state directly in \(\cal H\)phy.

In Quantum Field Theory > s.a. modified coherent states; states in quantum field theory.
* Motivation: Given a classical field, there is no unique quantum state one can associate with it, but the most natural or "likely" one is the coherent state, since it corresponds to the state of a quantum field after a classical source has been turned on for some time [1.02.85, from a meeting with Rafael].
* Interpretation: The probability of finding n quanta in the state ψz is a Poisson distribution with mean z z*.
