Title: On Wigner and Bohmian Measures in Semiclassical Quantum Mechanics

Abstract: We present different approaches to the semiclassical limit of the Schrödinger equation, including the (position space based) WKB, the (phase space based) Wigner and the fluid-like Bohmian approach. We point out the interrelations of these approaches, which give a ’transition’ from quantum to classical mechanics, illustrate their strengths and weaknesses and connections to classical fluid/gas dynamics.
