A (macroscopic) classical state is due to the decoherence of quantum states of a lot of particles.

A quantum state is a quantum eigenstate or a superposition of quantum eigenstates.

a classical state = a macroscopic definite state

a quantum eigenstate = a microscopic definite state

a definite state = a state whose measurement result can be predicted with 100% certainty
