Its Schwartz kernel is described by a quadratic phase and an amplitude. At every time t, when a is small, it is "essentially supported" in a neighborhood of the graph of the classical flow generated by H, with a full uniform asymptotic expansion in a for the amplitude. In this paper, our goal is to revisit this well-known and fundamental result with emphasis on the flexibility for the choice of a quadratic complex phase function and on global L.sup.2 estimates when a is small and time t is large. One of the simplest choice of the phase is known in chemical physics as Herman--Kluk formula. Moreover, we prove that the semiclassical expansion for the propagator is valid for $|t|\ll \frac{1}{4\delta}|{{\rm log}}\, \hbar|$ where I[acute accent] > 0 is a stability parameter for the classical system.
