**An Introduction to Quantum Chaos**

by Mason A. Porter

**Publisher**: arXiv 2001**Number of pages**: 57

**Description**:

Nonlinear dynamics ("chaos theory") and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The former lies at the heart of the modern interdisciplinary approach to science, whereas the latter has revolutionized physics. We give a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.
