Abstract

This study analyzes the geometrical relationship between a classical string and its semiclassical quantum model. From an arbitrary -dimensional geometry, a specific ansatz for a classical string is used to generate a semi-classical quantum model. In this framework, examples of quantum oscillations and quantum free particles are presented that uniquely determine a classical string and the space-time geometry where its motion takes place.
