Description

A serendipitous development of theoretical physics in the past decade was the apparent confluence of some major issues in several areas of physics: quantum measurement, quantum cosmology and semiclassical gravity, quantum chaos and mesoscopic physics. Although these areas address vastly different aspects of physics, covering atomic, molecular and quantum optics, condensed matter, nuclear as well as particle physics and general relativity, they all share the common concern of how the many quantum and classical features of matter and spacetime and their dynamics are related to each other. This fundamental issue, which lies at the base of all aspects of physics, is the theme of the conference at Drexel University.

The series of three conferences held at Drexel University on Quantum Nonintegrability were devoted to the forum on “quantum chaos” and related topics. In view of the rapid development in the physics of the quantum-classical interface, the conference organizers feel that it is timely to broaden the scope of the symposium to encompass one unifying theme: quantum-classical correspondence.
