In view of the lack of the general method for the construction of coherent states one is forced to study each case of a particle on a concrete manifold separately. the exposition of the subject presented herein is much more complete. sphere or torus. where M is the conﬁguration space. 3] and the sphere [4] have been introduced very recently. In spite of their importance the theory of coherent states in the case when the conﬁguration space has nontrivial topology is far from complete. in many cases interesting from the physical point of view such as a particle on a circle. some preliminary results concerning coherent states for the torus utilizing the Zak transform have been described in section 5 of ref. Section 3 deals with the quantum mechanics on a torus. In section 2 we recall the construction of the coherent states for a quantum particle on a circle [2]. For example the coherent states for a quantum particle on a circle [2. Nevertheless. INTRODUCTION Coherent states have attracted much attention in diﬀerent branches of physics [1]. Section 4 is devoted to the deﬁnition of the coherent states for the torus and discussion of their basic properties. there exists a general algorithm introduced by Perelomov [6] of construction of coherent states for homogeneous spaces X which are quotiens: X = G/H of a Lie-group manifold G and the stability subgroup H. For an excellent review of quantum mechanics on a circle including the coherent states we refer to very recent paper [5]. Unfortunately. 3.I. We remark that is no general method for construction of coherent states for a particle on an arbitrary manifold. the phase space whose points should label the coherent states. In this work we study the coherent states for the quantum mechanics on a torus based on the construction of coherent states for a particle on a circle as a solution of some eigenvalue equation [2]. As a matter of fact. is not a homogeneous space. more precisely a cotangent bundle T ∗ M. As far as we are aware the most general approach involving the case of the n-dimensional sphere S n as a conﬁguration space was recently introduced by Hall [7]. As a matter of fact. 2 .

Finally.α) (ϕ) = i 1 1 |θ3 ( 2π (ϕ1 − α1 − i(l1 − j01 )) 2π )θ3 ( 2π (ϕ2 − α2 − i(l2 − j02 )) | ϕ|l.24) and (4. the observations of this work would be of importance in the theory of quantum chaos.

We have not discussed in this paper the Bargmann representation which can be easily obtained by using the relations derived for the circle [2].17) on the probability density for the coordinates in the normalized coherent state p(l. Taking into account (4.13) can be easily derived from (4. (4. α |2 = i i i i l. α θ3 ( π (l1 − j01 ) π )θ3 ( π (l2 − j02 ) π ) i )|2 2π . [1] J. V.24) is peaked at ϕ = α for an arbitrary j0 .23) with the help of (4. 1985). we hope that similarly as with the coherent states for a particle on a circle which have been applied by Ashtekar et al [15] in loop quantum gravity also introduced coherent states for the torus would be of importance in this theory.20).13a) we ﬁnd that the approximation relation (4.24) Comparing (4.14) is valid for every j0 . We only recall that the torus is the conﬁguration space of the double pendulum and toroidal pendulum which are well known to show chaotic behaviour.R.S. besides of the possible applications in the solid state physics mentioned above. especially nanoscopic quantum rings [14]. Furthermore.23) and (4. one can easily obtain the following generalization of the formula (4. Another possible application of the constructed coherent states is nanotechnology.
