    • Abstract


      Biswas and Soni [4] have surmised a semiclassical formula for Berry’s phase in terms of a generating function. We derive this formula apart from showing that it is not true in general and investigate its domain of validity. We also derive transformation formulae for Berry’s phase (Hannay’s angle) under general canonical transformations. A simpler proof for total angle invariance than hitherto available, is given.
