Canonical Transformation to the Free Particle
Glass, E. N.; Scanio, Joseph J. G.
American Journal of Physics, 45, 4, 344-346, Apr 77
Demonstrates how to find some canonical transformations without solving the Hamilton-Jacobi equation. Constructs the transformations from the harmonic oscillator to the free particle and uses these as examples of transformations that cannot be maintained when going from classical to quantum systems.
