Quantum Chaos provides a comprehensive overview of our present understanding of chaotic behaviour 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. As yet, there is no universally accepted definition of quantum chaos. However, by dealing with such a wide range of topics from different branches of physics, this book provides a unique overview of this rapidly expanding field, and will be of great interest to graduate students and researchers in many areas of physics and chemistry.

Industry Reviews

"...a valuable reference for two purposes: On the one hand, it records important developments in the field of quantum chaos by reprinting influential papers. On the other hand, in the more review-like articles, it provides explanations of ideas and techniques that are often used in quantum chaos. Thus both active researchers and newcomers to the field will profit from reading this volume." Jens Bolte, Mathematical Reviews
