We study the three dimensional many-particle quantum dynamics. We prove rigorously that the compressible Euler equation is the limit as the particle number tends to infinity and the Planck’s constant tends to zero. We establish strong and quantitative microscopic to macroscopic convergence of mass and momentum densities up to the 1st blow up time of the limiting Euler equation. We justify that the macroscopic pressure emerges from the space-time averages of microscopic interactions, which are in fact, Strichartz-type bounds. We have hence found a physical meaning for Strichartz type bounds which were first raised by Klainerman and Machedon in this context.
