Research summary

In quantum chaos one considers systems whose classical motion is chaotic, i.e., depends sensitively on the initial conditions. One then investigates the quantum mechanical properties of these systems, for example their energy levels. It turns out that there are deep connections between the classical and quantum mechanical behaviour. Many aspectsI of this quantum behaviour are universal and independent of peculiarities of the system. For example, the statistics of energy levels becomes universal, and the different energy levels of a chaotic system always have a tendency to repel each other. These universal properties agree with phenomenological predictions from random matrix theory ...
