comment Why 'max' in $hf=\phi+{1\over{2}}mv_\text{max}^2$?
Are you saying that if we form an equation for the instant of liberation then we'd drop the $\text{max}$ subscript, but we include it because energy loss creeps in before the the electron is liberated from the bulk of the material?

comment Does Heisenberg uncertainty apply within each quantum configuration, or in the amplitude distribution over them?
The Wigner Function is waaay over my head. Can you please turn "it is precisely the uncertainty principle that precludes us to have the ampl. dist. over the phase space" into an answer which I can actually accept?
