We begin with a quick introduction to time-dependent quantum mechanics and the role of Planck's constant. We then describe some mathematical results about solutions to the Schr\"odinger equation for small values of the Planck constant. Finally, we discuss some new numerical techniques for semiclassical quantum dynamics, including one that is a work in progress.
