An Introduction to Quantum Chaos
by Mason A. Porter
Publisher: arXiv 2001
Number of pages: 57
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.

This book addresses the following topics: Iterations and fixed points; bifurcations; conjugacy; space and time averages; the contraction fixed point theorem; Hutchinson's theorem and fractal images; hyperbolicity; and symbolic dynamics.

Aimed at mathematics and engineering graduate students and researchers in the areas of optimization, dynamical systems, control systems, signal processing, and linear algebra. The problems solved are those of linear algebra and linear systems theory.

We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.
