Matrix elements for the quantum cat map: fluctuations in short windows
2007 (English)In: Nonlinearity, ISSN 0951-7715, E-ISSN 1361-6544, Vol. 20, no 10, 2289-2304 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We study fluctuations of the matrix coefficients for the quantized cat map. We consider the sum of matrix coefficients corresponding to eigenstates whose eigenphases lie in a randomly chosen window, assuming that the length of the window shrinks with Planck's constant. We show that if the length of the window is smaller than the square root of Planck's constant, but larger than the separation between distinct eigenphases, then the variance of this sum is proportional to the length of the window, with a proportionality constant which coincides with the variance of the individual matrix elements corresponding to Hecke eigenfunctions.
