How classical chaos can be described quantum mechanically?

How can we describe the chaotic properties of classical systems using quantum mechanics when the Schrodinger equation that describes quantum dynamics is linear? How can we use quantum mechanics that ...

Dynamical localisation in delta-kicked rotor

The quantum delta-kicked rotor is a common tool for studying quantum chaos. The energy of the rotor increases ballistically when kicking at the Talbot time (resonance) and jumps between zero and some ...

What can be the smallest chaotic system?

As I am talking about 'smallest' can I expect that it should be a quantum system? I understand that we use quantum chaos theory instead of perturbation theory when the perturbation is not small. For ...

Is that true that real quantum chaos doesn't exist?

I read several books and papers on quantum chaos, to my understanding they all emphases that the quantum chaos does not really exist because the linearity of the Schrodinger equation. Some works were ...

Are a quantum mechanical system a chaotic (yet deterministic) system?

The title is slightly misleading. I really want to know if the randomness and probabilities observed in quantum mechanics is really just the result of a chaotic (yet deterministic) system. If it is ...

What is the Quantum equivalent of chaos on a classical system? (if there's any)

This is a question that bugging me around for some time now. It is not clear to me what is the meaning of a chaos if we consider a quantum system. What is the mathematical formalism (or the quantum ...

Chaos and quantum physics: How many ways can a bonfire burn?

I'm interested in the extent to which quantum physical effects are seen at a macroscopic level. I might get some of the physics wrong, but I think I'll get it close enough that I can ask the ...
