From the introduction: ``Here we wish to generalize to \(SU(2)_ q\), the simplest quantum group, the q-deformation of the Lie algebra of SU(2), Schwinger's approach [\textit{J. Schwinger}, On angular momentum', in `Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum (ed. by L. C. Biedenharn and H. van Dam), Academic Press, 1965, p. 229-279] to the quantum theory of angular momentum. To achieve this, a q-deformation of the quantum harmonic oscillator formalism has to be developed. Much of the present paper is devoted to this task. Then the algebra of \(SU(2)_ q\), and its representations can be realized in terms of the variables of two independent q-deformed harmonic oscillators. Our results involve explicit coordinate of wavefunctions representations as well as abstract Hilbert space versions.''
