Abstract

This paper develops a new semiclassical mechanics from an exact quantum prescription. In this formulation, a zeroth order propagation, rather than Hamiltonian, is specified. The exact, full evolution operator is then given from a specific interaction representation of the evolved "perturbation" Hamiltonian. We then investigate a variety of approximate, semiclassical, and mixed Quantum/Classical methods, along with exact methodologies to evaluate this time dependent interaction Hamiltonian. The approximate full evolution operator can be described in a variety of ways including an iterated Lippman-Schwinger like equation, and an expansion of the perturbation propagator generated from the time evolved Hamiltonian.
