Quantum Chaos and the Theory of Measurement
This paper gives an indication of what I think should be the meaning of the phrase “quantum chaos” (QC for short). It is in no way intended to express a consensus of the views of other participants at the Conference Como 83, or its organizers. QC suggests to me a concern with the transcription into Quantum Mechanics of the kinds of dynamical problems discussed at Como 77 (where the order term “stochastic” was used rather than the catchy and more modern word “chaos”).
