Special functions with mod n symmetry and kaleidoscope of quantum coherent states
The set of mod n functions associated with primitive roots of unity and discrete Fourier transform is introduced. These functions naturally appear in description of superposition of coherent states related with regular polygon, which we call kaleidoscope of quantum coherent states. Displacement operators for kaleidoscope states are obtained by mod n exponential functions with operator argument and non-commutative addition formulas. Normalization constants, average number of photons, Heinsenberg uncertainty relations and coordinate representation of wave functions with mod n symmetry are expressed in a compact form by these functions.
