The semiclassical limit of quantum dynamics. I: Time evolution. (English) Zbl 0647.46060
The \(\hslash \to 0\) limit of the quantum dynamics determined by the Hamiltonian \(H(\hslash)=-(\hslash^ 2/2m)\Delta +V\) on \(L^ 2({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) is studied for a large class of potentials. By convolving with certain Gaussian states, classically determined asymptotic behavior of the quantum evolution of states of compact support is obtained. For initial states of class \(C^ 1_ 0\) the error terms are shown to have \(L^ 2\) norms of order \(\hslash^{-\epsilon}\) for arbitrarily small positive \(\epsilon\).
