Quantum-classical interactions and measurement: a consistent description using statistical ensembles on configuration space

Reginatto, Marcel; Hall, Michael


We provide an overview of a canonical formalism that describes mixed quantum-classical systems in terms of statistical ensembles on configuration space, and discuss applications to measurement theory. It is shown that the formalism allows a general description of the measurement of a quantum system by a classical apparatus without running into inconsistencies. An example of classical and quantum particles interacting gravitationally is also given.
