The New World of Quantum Mechanics

  • Martin C. Gutzwiller
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 1)


The study of possible chaos in quantum mechanics is less than two decades old, and the results so far are not nearly as clearcut and systematic as in classical mechanics. The interesting examples have all been quite simple, however, and the essence of quantum mechanics is not in question. The reader is assumed to be familiar with most of the general precepts as well as the standard methods of wave mechanics. They will be reviewed briefly in this chapter with special emphasis on the later applications.
