Title: Classical-quantum correspondence and backreaction

Abstract

We work in the Heisenberg picture to demonstrate the classical-quantum correspondence (CQC) in which the dynamics of a quantum variable is equivalent to that of a complexified classical variable. The correspondence provides a tool for analyzing quantum backreaction problems which we illustrate by a toy model in which a rolling particle slows down due to quantum radiation. In conclusion, the dynamics found using the CQC is in excellent agreement with that found using the much more laborious full quantum analysis.
