Quantum Chaos and Mesoscopic Physics

This minisymposium concerns the universal properties of quantum mechanical systems which are chaotic in their classical limit. The speakers will discuss both open (scattering) and isolated systems, with an emphasis on the connection between quantum chaos and mesoscopic fluctuation phenomena seen in micron-scale electronic structures.
