In the long term, the project aims to provide new insight into chemical physics models and possibly quantum chaos problems
Their topics include specifics of classical dynamics in multi-well potentials--mixed state, quantum manifestations of classical stochasticity--formulation of the problem, numerical methods in multi-well potentials, signatures of quantum chaos in wave function structure, and the mixed state and concrete physical effects.
Many aspects of classical and quantum chaos have been widely studied by means of billiards with different shapes [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17].

This effect is also a characteristic of quantum chaos (see Ref.
It may also provide an help to understand quantum chaos experiments.
Now that the novel has achieved its chronological fullness--we are in the present--it is precisely the opposite for which Nick longs, and since "longing on a large scale is what makes history" (11), since "most of our longings go unfulfilled" (803), and the very last word of the novel, "peace," "spreads a longing through the raw sprawl of the city" (827), we begin to fathom the relationship between disorder, perhaps a quantum chaos that remains full of possibilities, and human desire, which emerges in Nick's incarnation of it, as he thirsts for that disorder, that infinite sense of possibility that the novel, until the very end, has defeated.
For advanced undergraduate science, math, and engineering students who have taken introductory courses in linear algebra, calculus, and classical and quantum mechanics, as well as graduate students and scientists and engineers, Blumel (Wesleyan U.) introduces quantum chaos and semiclassical physics.
The need for a numerical treatment of A-F entropy arises particularly in the field of quantum chaos and decoherence: the Conclusions briefly mention this problem and summarize the work.
The "Journal of Modern Dynamics" covers the theory of dynamical systems with an emphasis on the mutual interaction between dynamics and other major areas of mathematical research, including number theory, differential geometry, quantum chaos, geometric group theory and harmonic analysis.
Over the years there has been a considerable debate as to whether linear QM can fully describe Quantum Chaos. Despite that the quantum counterparts of classical chaotic systems have been studied via the techniques of linear QM, it is our opinion that Quantum Chaos is truly a new paradigm in physics which is associated with non-unitary and nonlinear QM processes based on non-Hermitian operators (implementing time symmetry breaking).
