Abstract

The time evolution of wavefunctionsΦ(t) composed of superpositions of energy eigenstates are compared when the wavefunctions are initiated in (1) the non-integrable and (2) the integrable regimes in the phase space of the Henon - Heiles system. The behavior of (Figure presented.) is found to be very different in the two regions
