Complexified quantum theory and the semiclassical limitEva-Maria Graefe (Imperial College London)
The relation between quantum systems and their classical analogues is a subtle matter that has been investigated since the early days of quantum mechanics. Today, we have at our disposal powerful tools to formulate in a precise way the semi-classical limit. The understanding of quantum classical correspondence is of importance (a) for the interpretation and practical understanding of quantum effects, and (b) as a basis of a variety of simulation methods for quantum spectra and dynamics. Recently, there has been a growing interest in so-called non-Hermitian or "complexified" quantum theories. Applications include (i) decay, (ii) transport and scattering phenomena, (iii) dissipative systems, and (iv) PT-symmetric theories. In this talk I will present an overview of some of the issues and novelties arising in the investigation of the classical analogues of such "complexified” quantum theories, with applications ranging from optics to cold atoms and Bose-Einstein condensates.
