Chaos and quantum physics

Front Cover
In the last decade the understanding of the relations between classical and quantum mechanics has advanced tremendously and the following broad themes are dealt with in this book:- bull; random matrices: a resurgence of an old theory brought in from nuclear physics, now the standard for analysing "signatures" of classical chaos in quantum systems; bull; the complex quantum behaviour of driven Hamiltonian systems and localization phenomena; bull; chaos in scattering systems and the properties of S -matrices; bull; spectra of quantum systems whose classical analogues are the geodesic flows on negatively curved compact manifolds; bull; the wealth of properties of wave functions for classically chaotic systems; bull; the rise and growth of the concept of chaos in all sectors of "physics of microscopic media": nuclear, atomic, molecular, solid-state physics.
