Definition
A rational number associated with a coherent sheaf $E$ over a curve : the degree divided by the rank :

$\mu(E)
\;\coloneqq\;
\frac{deg(E)}{rank(E)}
\,.$

For vector bundles : “normalized Chern character ” (Shatz 77 )

e.g. (Huybrechts-Lehn 96, def. 1.2.11 )

This is what enters the condition on stable coherent sheaves .
