Classical limit of quantum chaos Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • When a quantum system has a classically chaotic analog, the expectation value 〈 E ¦ A ¦ E − > of any dynamical variable A , for an energy eigenstate ¦ E > tends to the classical microcanonical average of the analog variable A , at the same energy E . Some numerical examples are discussed.
