We discuss the relevance of chaotic scattering in heavy-ion reactions at energies around the Coulomb barrier. A model in two and three dimensions which takes into account rotational degrees of freedom is discussed both classically and quantum mechanically. The typical chaotic features found in this description of heavy-ion collisions are connected with the… CONTINUE READING
