Classically forbidden processes are those that cannot take place via ordinary classical dynamics. Within the framework of classical S‐matrix theory, however, classical mechanics can be analytically continued and classical‐limit approximations obtained for these classically forbidden, or weak transition amplitudes (i.e., S‐matrix elements). The most powerful and general way of analytically continuing classical mechanics for a complex dynamical system is to integrate the equations of motion… CONTINUE READING
