Abstract

We investigate the classical limit of the dynamics of a semiclassical system that represents the interaction between matter and a given field. On using as a quantifier the q- Complexity, we find that it describes appropriately the quantum-classical transition, detecting the most salient details of the changeover. Additionally the q-Complexity results a better quantifier of the problem than the q-entropy, in the sense that the q-range is enlarged, describing the q-Complexity, the most important characteristics of the transition for all q-value.
