@article{Correggi2017EffectivePG, title={Effective Potentials Generated by Field Interaction in the Quasi-Classical Limit}, author={Michele Correggi and Marco Falconi}, journal={Annales Henri Poincar{\'e}}, year={2017}, volume={19}, pages={189-235} }

We study the quasi-classical limit of a quantum system composed of finitely many nonrelativistic particles coupled to a quantized field in Nelson-type models. We prove that, as the field becomes classical and the corresponding degrees of freedom are traced out, the effective Hamiltonian of the particles converges in resolvent sense to a self-adjoint Schrödinger operator with an additional potential, depending on the state of the field. Moreover, we explicitly derive the expression of such a…
