Abstract

A simple approach to phase-space representation of quantum state vectors using the displacement-operator formalism is presented. Although the resulting expressions for the fundamental operators (position and momentum) are equivalent to those obtained by other methods, this approach provides both alternative mathematical foundation as well as physical interpretation of phase-space representation of quantum state vectors.
