Abstract

Following constructions in the case of canonical and affine coherent states, a universal propagator for a general Hamiltonian appropriate to a single spin degree of freedom is introduced. The universal propagator is a single function, independent of any particular choice of fiducial vector, which, nonetheless, propagates all coherent state Hubert space representatives correctly. Furthermore, we explicitly construct the universal propagator for several examples.
