Abstract

The role of chaotic and quasiperiodic behavior of isolated molecules is discussed. The quantum analog of classical quasi- periodic states appears to be relatively well understood. A possible quantum analog of classical chaotic behavior is described, using overlapping quantum mechanical Fermi resonances as a way of generating irregularities. The relation of these Fermi resonances to avoided crossings in eigenvalue plots and to various treatments of intramolecular dynamics in the chemical literature is outlined.
