- The study of dynamical quantum systems, which are classically chaotic, and the search for quantum manifestations of classical chaos, require large scale numerical computations. Special numerical techniques developed and applied in such studies are discussed: The numerical solution of the time-dependent Schr-odinger equation, the construction of quantum phase space densities, quantum dynamics in phase space, the use of phase space entropies for characterizing localization phenomena, etc. As an illustration, the dynamics of a driven one-dimensional anharmonic oscillator is studied, both classically and quantum mechanically. In addition, spectral properties and chaotic tunneling are addressed.
