We prove quantum-classical correspondence for bound conservative classically chaotic Hamiltonian systems. In particular, quantum Liouville spectral projection operators and spectral densities, and hence classical dynamics, are shown to approach their classical analogs in the h!0 limit. Correspondence is shown to occur via the elimination of essential singularities. In addition, applications to matrix elements of observables in chaotic systems are discussed. @S1050-2947~96!05212-2# The validity…

Quantum-classical correspondence in the vicinity of periodic orbits.

A method to quantify Bohr's correspondence principle and calculate the size of quantum numbers for which to observe quantum-classical correspondence near periodic orbits of Floquet systems is described and used to explain the breakdown of quantum- classical correspondence in chaotic systems.

Intrinsic decoherence dynamics in smooth Hamiltonian systems: Quantum-classical correspondence

A direct classical analog of the quantum dynamics of intrinsic decoherence in Hamiltonian systems, characterized by the time dependence of the linear entropy of the reduced density operator, is

Equilibrium stationary coherence in the multilevel spin-boson model

Interaction between a quantum system and its environment can induce stationary coherences---off-diagonal elements in the reduced system density matrix in the energy eigenstate basis---even at

Hilbert space theory of classical electrodynamics

Classical electrodynamics is reformulated in terms of wave functions in the classical phase space of electrodynamics, following the Koopman–von Neumann–Sudarshan prescription for classical mechanics

Duality between quantum and classical dynamics for integrable billiards.

A duality between the quantum wave vector spectrum and the eigenmodes of the classical Liouvillian dynamics for integrable billiards is established and these classical eigenModes can be observed in physical experiments through the autocorrelation of the transmission coefficient of waves in quantumBilliards.

From Trajectories to Ensembles in Classical Mechanics

The time-evolution of interacting “small” systems is usually described by means of quantum mechanics. However, very often, it happens that a first approach to these dynamics by means of classical

Quantum Poincaré section of a two-dimensional Hamiltonian in a coherent state representation

We study the quantum behaviour of a quasi-integrable Hamiltonian. The unperturbed Hamiltonian displays degeneracies of energy levels, which become avoided crossings under a nonintegrable
