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 contains articles in several areas of dynamical systems that have recently experienced substantial progress. Some of the major surveys focus on symplectic geometry; smooth rigidity; hyperbolic, parabolic, and symbolic dynamics; etc.

These notes cover a very short introduction to measure-theoretic and topological entropy, and are aimed at understanding part of Yuzvinskii's formula for the entropy of compact group automorphisms. Based on a course at the Ohio State University.
