We consider quantum dynamical systems (in general, these could be either Hamiltonian or dissipative, but in this review we shall be interested only in quantum Hamiltonian systems) that have, at least formally, a classical limit. This means, in particular, that each time-dependent quantum-mechanical expectation value X (t) has as i cl Ii -+ 0 a limit Xi(t) -+ x1 )(t) of the corresponding classical sys­ tem. Quantum-mechanical considerations include an additional di­ mensionless parameter f = iiiconst. connected with the Planck constant Ii. Even in the quasiclassical region where f<_20_12c_20_the20_dyc2ad_20_namics20_of20_the20_quantum20_and20_classicalfunctions20_xi28_t29_20_and20_xiccl29_28_t29_20_will20_be20_different2c_20_in20_general2c_20_and20_quantum20_dynamics20_for20_expectation20_valc2ad_20_ues20_may20_coincide20_with20_classical20_dynamics20_only20_for20_some20_finite20_time.20_this20_characteristic20_time-scale2c_20_tii.2c_20_could20_depend20_on20_several20_factors20_which20_will20_be20_discussed20_below2c_20_including3a_20_choice20_of20_expectation20_valc2ad_20_ues2c_20_initial20_state2c_20_physical20_parameters20_and20_so20_on.20_thus2c_20_the20_problem20_arises20_in20_this20_connection3a_20_how20_to20_estimate20_the20_characteristic20_timec2ad_20_scale20_tii.20_of20_the20_validity20_of20_the20_quasiclassical20_approximation20_and20_how20_to20_measure20_it20_in20_an20_experiment3f_20_for20_rather20_simple20_integrable20_quanc2ad_20_tum20_systems20_in20_the20_stable20_regions20_of20_motion20_of20_their20_corresponding20_classical20_phase20_space2c_20_this20_time-scale20_t22_20_usually20_is20_of20_order20_28_see2c_20_for20_example2c_20_5b_25d_29_20_const20_tii.20_3d_20_p2c_li20_2c_20_28_1.129_20_q20_where20_p2c_20_is20_the20_dimensionless20_parameter20_of20_nonlinearity20_28_discussed20_below29_20_and20_a20_is20_a20_constant20_of20_the20_order20_of20_unity. _12c_="" the="" _dyc2ad_="" namics="" of="" quantum="" and="" classicalfunctions="" _xi28_t29_="" _xiccl29_28_t29_="" will="" be="" _different2c_="" in="" _general2c_="" dynamics="" for="" expectation="" _valc2ad_="" ues="" may="" coincide="" with="" classical="" only="" some="" finite="" time.="" this="" characteristic="" _time-scale2c_="" _tii.2c_="" could="" depend="" on="" several="" factors="" which="" discussed="" _below2c_="" _including3a_="" choice="" _ues2c_="" initial="" _state2c_="" physical="" parameters="" so="" on.="" _thus2c_="" problem="" arises="" _connection3a_="" how="" to="" estimate="" _timec2ad_="" scale="" tii.="p%2cli" validity="" quasiclassical="" approximation="" measure="" it="" an="" _experiment3f_="" rather="" simple="" integrable="" _quanc2ad_="" tum="" systems="" stable="" regions="" motion="" their="" corresponding="" phase="" _space2c_="" time-scale="" _t22_="" usually="" is="" order="" _28_see2c_="" _example2c_="" _5b_25d_29_="" const="" _2c_="" _28_1.129_="" q="" where="" _p2c_="" dimensionless="" parameter="" nonlinearity="" _28_discussed="" _below29_="" a="" constant="">
