"Coherent states approximation and the semiclassical limit"
The problem of understanding the relation between Classical and Quantum Mechanics has a long history which dates back to Schrodinger in 1926. In this talk, after an introductory part on Classical and Quantum Mechanics, we start giving the definition of Coherent State and consider the problem of approximating the exact solution to the Schrodinger equation using this particular class of wave functions. In the last part we discuss about the error term of this approximation and introduce the so called "Ehrenfest time".
