Introduction to the chaotic dynamics of classical Hamiltonian systems and to the spectral properties of their quantum counterparts.
For addition information about the subject consult SIS.
Dr. Georgios Loukes-Gerakopoulos, Astronomical Institute CAS (classical chaos)
Dr. Pavel Stránský, Institute of Particle and Nuclear Physics MFF UK (quantum chaos)
Theory demonstrated by practical problems solved on computers ("hands-on").
Classical theoretical mechanics, quantum mechanics and programming. The course is intended for students master and doctoral students of theoretical programmes. but everybody interested in the topic is welcome.
