Abstract

Chaos implies unpredictability, fluctuations, and the need for statistical modelling. Quantum optics has developed into one of the most advanced subdisciplines of modern physics in terms of the control of matter on a microscopic scale, and, in particular, of isolated, single quantum objects. Prima facie, both fields therefore appear rather distant in philosophy and outset. However, as we shall discuss in the present review, chaos, and, more specifically, quantum chaos opens up novel perspectives for our understanding of the dynamics of increasingly complex quantum systems, and of ultimate quantum control by tailoring complexity.
