We study the dynamics of classical and quantum systems linearly interacting with a classical environment represented by an infinite set of harmonic oscillators. The environment induces a dynamical localization of the quantum state into a generalized coherent state for which the ¯ h → 0 limit always exists and reproduces the classical motion. We describe the… (More)
