The functional {rho}={vert_bar}{integral}d{rvec r}{psi}{sup 2}{vert_bar}{sup 2} measures the phase rigidity of a chaotic wave function {psi}({rvec r}) in the transition between Hamiltonian ensembles with orthogonal and unitary symmetry. Upon breaking time-reversal symmetry, {rho} crosses over from one to zero. We compute the distribution of {rho} in the crossover regime and find that it has large fluctuations around the ensemble average. These fluctuations imply long-range spatial correlations…

Deconstructing effective non-Hermitian dynamics in quadratic bosonic Hamiltonians

Unlike their fermionic counterparts, the dynamics of Hermitian quadratic bosonic Hamiltonians are governed by a generally non-Hermitian Bogoliubov-de Gennes effective Hamiltonian. This underlying

Nodal portraits of quantum billiards: Domains, lines, and statistics

We present a comprehensive review of the nodal domains and lines of quantum billiards, emphasizing a quantitative comparison of theoretical findings to experiments. The nodal statistics are shown to

Random-matrix and quantum-critical crossovers for interacting electrons in quantum dots

Quantum dots with a large Thouless number $g$ embody a regime where both disorder and interactions can be treated nonperturbatively using large-$N$ techniques (with $N=g$) and quantum phase

Projective Hilbert space structures at exceptional points

A non-Hermitian complex symmetric 2 × 2-matrix toy model is used to study projective Hilbert space structures in the vicinity of exceptional points (EPs). The bi-orthogonal eigenvectors of a

Fluctuations and correlations in scattering on a resonance coupled to a chaotic background

We discuss and briefly overview recent progress with studying fluctuations in scattering on a resonance state coupled to the background of many chaotic states. Such a problem arises naturally, e.g.,


Due to recent progress in semiconductor technology, experimental study of nanoscale electronic systems has become a very popular field of research. In small devices studied experimentally, electron

Classical wave experiments on chaotic scattering

We review recent research on the transport properties of classical waves through chaotic systems with special emphasis on microwaves and sound waves. Inasmuch as these experiments use antennas or
