Títle: Adventures and misadventures in Orbital Angular Momentum
Time/Place: 15hs, Centro de Tecnologia do Fundão, Bloco A, sala 343.
I will present a comprehensive theory of the Wigner function for the canonical pair angle–angular momentum is presented. Special attention is paid to the problems linked to rotational periodicity and angular-momentum discreteness. I will discuss how to extend this to other situations of interest in quantum optics.
