The geometry of the parameter space is encoded by the quantum geometric tensor, which captures fundamental information about quantum states and contains both the quantum metric tensor and the curvature of the Berry connection. We present a formulation of the Berry connection and the quantum geometric tensor in the framework of the phase space or Wigner function formalism. This formulation is obtained through the direct application of the Weyl correspondence to the geometric structure under consideration. In particular, we show that the quantum metric tensor can be computed using only the Wigner functions, which opens an alternative way to experimentally measure the components of this tensor. We also address the non-Abelian generalization and obtain the phase space formulation of the Wilczek–Zee connection and the non-Abelian quantum geometric tensor. In this case, the non-Abelian quantum …
