# On the Classical Limit of Quantum Mechanics

@article{Allori2001OnTC, title={On the Classical Limit of Quantum Mechanics}, author={Valia Allori and Nino Zangh{\'i}}, journal={Foundations of Physics}, year={2001}, volume={39}, pages={20-32} }

Contrary to the widespread belief, the problem of the emergence of classical mechanics from quantum mechanics is still open. In spite of many results of the standard approach, it is not yet clear how to explain within standard quantum mechanics the classical motion of macroscopic bodies. In this paper, we shall formulate the classical limit as a scaling limit in terms of an adimensional parameter ε. We shall take the first steps toward a comprehensive understanding of the classical limit… CONTINUE READING
