# Classical dynamics as observed quantum dynamics

@article{Lopez2020ClassicalDA, title={Classical dynamics as observed quantum dynamics}, author={Juli'an Ortiz L'opez and Laura Ares and Alfredo Luis}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2020} }

We examine a case study where classical evolution emerges when observing a quantum evolution. This a single-mode quantum Kerr evolution interrupted by measurement of the double-homodyne kind projecting the evolved field state into classical-like coherent states or quantum squeezed states. We show that irrespective of whether the measurement is classical or quantum there is no quantum Zeno effect and the evolution turns out to be classical. We provide a practical scheme to perform such…

It is demonstrated that even in a classically chaotic system the quantum state vector conditioned by the measurement remains localized and, under these conditions, follows a trajectory characterized by the classical Lyapunov exponent.

Classical dynamics is formulated as a Hamiltonian flow on phase space, while quantum mechanics is formulated as a unitary dynamics in Hilbert space. These different formulations have made it…
