Semiclassical theory for spatial density oscillations in fermionic systems.
It is proved that the Thomas-Fermi functional tau(TF)[rho] reproduces the oscillations in the quantum-mechanical densities to first order in the oscillating parts.
A semiclassical approach in the linear response theory
We consider a quantum system of non-interacting fermions at temperature T, in the framework of linear response theory. We show that semiclassical theory is an appropriate framework to describe some
Semiclassical Approaches to Mesoscopic Systems
We review semiclassical methods of determining both average trends and quantum shell effects in the properties of finite fermion systems. I. Extended Thomas-Fermi model (ETF): the average,
Orbital magnetic susceptibility of disordered mesoscopic systems
In this paper we study the orbital weak-field susceptibility of two-dimensional diffusive mesoscopic systems. For the previously unstudied regime of temperatures lower than the mean level spacing we
A semiclassical collective response of heated, asymmetric, and rotating nuclei
The quasiparticle Landau Fermi-liquid and periodic orbit theories are presented for the semi-classical description of collective excitations in nuclei, which are close to one of the main topics of
Mesoscopic Orbital Magnetism in AN Integrable System
We study the mesoscopic orbital magnetism of a free electron gas in a rectangular box in the zero-temperature limit. We find that, as in weakly disordered systems, it can be well-described by the van
Magnetic response of metallic nanoparticles: Geometric and weakly relativistic effects
While the large paramagnetic response measured in certain ensembles of metallic nanoparticles has been assigned to orbital effects of conduction electrons, the spin-orbit coupling has been pointed

Semiclassical spectrum of integrable systems in a magnetic field
The quantum dynamics of an electron in a uniform magnetic field is studied for two-dimensional geometries corresponding to integrable cases. The WKB approximations of the energies and the


Stochastic Behaviour of the Magnetisation in a Classically Integrable Quantum System
We present a two-dimensional model of noninteracting electrons in an external magnetic field. This model is of common use in the study of the Hall effect. In the classical limit the system is

The magnetic behavior of spinless electrons confined in a cylinder of radiusR by a harmonic oscillator potential is calculated over the entire range of sizesR/rH, whererH is the radius of the

The phase integral approximation for the Green's function is investigated so as to yield an approximate expression for the density of states per unit interval of energy. This quantity is shown for

A surprising failure is uncovered of the semiclassical diagonal-approximation theory in describing the magnitude of these quantum transport effects of classical chaotic scattering for semiconductor microstructures.

The relation between the solutions of the time‐independent Schrodinger equation and the periodic orbits of the corresponding classical system is examined in the case where neither can be found by the
Orbital magnetism in ensembles of ballistic billiards.
Using semiclassical methods and numerical calculation it is demonstrated that only short classical trajectories are relevant for ensembles of small two-dimensional structures at finite temperatures, and the magnetic susceptibility is enhanced in regular systems where these trajectories appear in families.
Chaotic scattering, unstable periodic orbits, and fluctuations in quantum transport.
This paper focuses on specific results relating to ballistic electron transport in small, mesoscopic devices with explicit predictions for the fluctuations in the electrical conductivity as functions of the electron Fermi energy and of an applied magnetic field.
Semiclassical structure of trace formulas
Trace formulas provide the only general relations known connecting quantum mechanics with classical mechanics in the case that the classical motion is chaotic. In particular, they connect quantal
