This book describes the manifestations of chaos in atoms and molecules. The study of chaos is today one of the most active and prolific areas in atomic physics. This is the first attempt to provide a coherent introduction to this fascinating area. In line with its scope, the book is divided into two parts. The first part (chapters 1a5) deals with the theory and principles of classical chaos. The ideas developed here are then applied to actual atomic and molecular physics systems in the second part of the book (chapters 6a10) covering microwave driven surface state electrons, the hydrogen atom in a strong microwave field, the kicked hydrogen atom, chaotic scattering with CsI molecules and the helium atom. The book contains many diagrams and a detailed references list.4 Chaos in quantum mechanics Einstein (1917) appreciated early on that within the aolda pre-1925/ 26 quantum mechanics absence of ... classical systems in no way introduces conceptual problems into the framework of modern quantum theory, although, let it be emphasized again ... The answer is that most quantum systems do not. ... An example of this suppression effect is discussed in Chapter 5.
