    I changed back the name of the page to coherent state. Though it is usually considered in quantum mechanics, and the name is still correct, as a specialist in the area of coherent states, I have almost never seen the phrase “coherent quantum state” written out in mathematical physics, so I would prefer to have this long unusual name as a redirect only. Of course, we often talk about the coherence of quantum states. But this is about a general feature of coherence, like in optics. The specific states in mathematical physics which, among other features, have such coherence properties are usually called squeezed coherent states, and the coherent states of these entry are even more specific than those. I am about to add a couple of new references, so I came across the page again.

    I just write a comment under coherent quantum state.
