- Quantum chaos in billiards
- A. Bäcker
Computing in Science & Engineering, vol. 9, no. 3, May/June 2007, pp. 60--64
- Billiards are an important class of systems
showing a large variety of dynamical behaviour ranging
from integrable (i.e. regular) motion,
over mixed dynamics to strongly chaotic behaviour.
Using tools developed with Python one can interactively
study the complexity of the dynamics.
This dynamical behaviour
is directly reflected in properties of the corresponding
quantum systems, like eigenvalue statistics
or the structure of eigenfunctions.
