Quantum chaology in phase space through the Wigner transform
Description:  The Wigner function is one of the five major equivalent formulations of Quantum Mechanics. The others being Schrödinger's Heisenberg's, Feynman's path integral and the Density Operator. The study of the quantization of classically chaotic systems in the 70's led to the generalization of the Wigner transform to non-trivial phase spaces. In this seminar we will present the quantization of the classically chaotic kicked rotator model using the Wigner transform of M. Berry and its modification due to J. P. Bizarro. We will in particular see how the Wigner formalism is especially suited to study this problem.
