    Abstract

    In this paper we address the following simple question: Given a wavefunction ψ(x,t)ψ(x,t) in a one-dimensional configuration space, is it possible to give a unique two-dimensional representation ρ(x,p,t)ρ(x,p,t) in a position-momentum phase plane? If so, can we find the general condition that makes this possible? We will show that this is indeed possible by using an idea introduced originally by Fermi provided the boundary of the phase space area is a closed curve satisfying a certain exact quantum condition.
