The Correspondence Principle Revisited.
Liboff, Richard L.
Physics Today, v37 n2 p50-55 Feb 1984
Addresses the question of frequency correspondence in the domain of large quantum numbers, with reference to periodic systems. Provides two simple counterexamples (a particle in a cubical box and a rigid rotator) to show that the classical result is not always recovered in the limit of large quantum numbers. (JM)
