Abstract

In recent years chaotic behavior in scattering problems has been found to be important in a host of physical situations. Concurrently, a fundamental understanding of the dynamics in these situations has been developed, and such issues as symbolic dynamics, fractal dimension, entropy, and bifurcations have been studied. The quantum manifestations of classical chaotic scattering is also an extremely active field, with new analytical techniques being developed and with experiments being carried out. This issue of Chaos provides an up-to-date survey of the range of work in this important field of study.
