A Classical-Quantum Correspondence

We show that certain quantum systems in non-trivial classical 
backgrounds can be mapped into entirely classical systems in 
higher dimensions. The evolution of the classical system can
be used to obtain the particle production rate as well as the 
quantum backreaction on the classical background. The technique 
has many potential applications, including breather/oscillon
dynamics, Hawking radiation and black hole evaporation, and
particle production during inflation.
