This book represents a comprehensive overview of our present understanding of chaotic behavior in a wide variety of quantum and semiclassical systems, and describes both experimental and theoretical investigations. A general introduction sets out the main features of chaos in quantum systems. Thereafter, in an authoritative collection of new or previously published papers, prominent scientists put forward their particular interpretations of quantum chaos with reference to a broad range of interesting physical systems.
