The Schrodinger equation exactly describes the
dynamics of any quantum system. However, solving it
is practically impossible in case of large number of
particles or complex environment. In this talk I give
an overview on how to approximate the quantum dynamics
by much simpler PDE's in certain limiting regimes.
Semiclassical, low disorder, weak-coupling and
mean field limits will be discussed.
