Bounded Quantum Systems
We now begin the first of four chapters in which we study the effects of classical chaos on quantum dynamics. In this chapter, we consider the behavior of bounded systems (which have a discrete energy spectrum) in which energy is conserved. In subsequent chapters, we will consider open quantum systems (which have a continuous energy spectrum) in which energy is conserved, and we will consider systems driven by time-periodic forces in which energy is not conserved but Floquet energy (quasienergy) is conserved.
