Is the Distribution of a Nucleus’s Levels a Sign of Quantum Chaos?

Abstract

It is shown that the distribution of energy levels in a system is a fairly weak sign of a system’s chaoticity and cannot serve as a quantitative measure of it. A brief description is presented of a better criterion of quantum chaos and its quantitative measure that was proposed in the author’s earlier works.
