|Title:||Semiclassical propagation of coherent states using complex and real trajectories|
de Aguiar, MAM
|Abstract:||A semiclassical approximation to the time evolution of coherent states may be derived from a saddle point approximation to the exact quantum propagator, and in general it involves complex classical dynamics. We generalize previous one-dimensional results to d dimensions, and for the case d=2 we present several applications. We also consider other simple approximations that depend only on real classical trajectories, but are not initial value representations. These approximations are able to reproduce interference and tunneling effects and involve propagating a few classical initial conditions compatible with the quantum uncertainties.|
